Favorite Broccoli Salad

"Fresh colorful...delicious dressing" are some of the compliments I get whenever I serve this broccoli salad with a meal or take it to a church dinner. Although I use many other good salad recipes, I'm especially fond of this one. —Esther Shank, Harrisonville, Virginia

    I have probably made at least 50 broccoli salad recipes and I can say this is one of the best I have ever made. It is colorful and the addition of the egg chopped fine blended in with the dressing to make it very tasty.

    This was quite tasty. Much better freshly made than next day. The broccoli needs to be cut into smaller pieces than simply separated into florets. Because I don't care for too sweet of a dressing, I would lower the sugar amount to 1/4 cup. No need to seed the tomato, just use Roma tomatoes.

    I love this recipe. I omit the cauliflower & just use broccoli. I also add raisins & shredded cheddar cheese. Tastes better than the deli!

    I make this for many family parties and special dinners. It gets so many compliments and recipe requests. My aunt, who hates broccoli, raved about it when she tried it at my house and asked for the recipe.
