Reviews for Western Broccoli
"It was a nice change from the usual side salad. I replaced the tomato with a cup of grape tomatoes and the fat free ranch dressing with light ranch dressing."
"This is a nice change of pace from the usual sweet broccoli salad recipe. I use light ranch dressing instead of fat free."
