Simple Broccoli Salad
Because broccoli salad won't wilt like lettuce salads, you can make it ahead for added convenience. To enhance the salad, I will sometimes add walnuts, green grapes, mushrooms and a touch of onion. You can also mix in cauliflower florets with the broccoli, then squeeze on a hint of lemon juice.—Nova MacIsaac, Souris, Prince Edward Island
