Broccoli Orange Salad Recipe

Meet the Cook: Every time I take this sweet orangy salad to a potluck, I pass around the recipe, too. My husband and I have three children, ages 22, 18 and 10. He's a beef and poultry farmer, and I'm an elementary school teacher. -Cathy Lavers, Scotsburn, Nova Scotia

"Absolutely outstanding! The dressing is just sweet enough without being too sweet and the other ingredients are varied enough that each bite tickles the palette in a different way."
