Tomato Broccoli Salad Recipe

Tomato Broccoli Salad Recipe

I found this recipe over 25 years ago. I made a few changes to it and our family has enjoyed it ever since. The colorful combination is perfect for the holidays, but it's equally nice at a summer picnic. —Helen Meadows of Trout Creek, Montana
