    Thanks for posting this. I love this salad but don't purchase it very often at the deli as it is way too expensive. Now I can make it myself! Thanks again!

    Broccoli Salad

    Hi crazyliblady, because as good as this salad tastes I live alone, have a small appetite and am disabled. Perhaps next time I make it for a get together, I'll simply hide some away instead of praying there is some left over, eh? ;-) I love cooking and am really good at it but unless it's a recipe that can be frozen in individual containers or ingredients can easily be reduced and eaten within three days or sharing with company, I simply don't make it.

    Cool crunchy and oh, so good!

    Ingredients:

    Dressing

    Directions:

    Mix the salad ingredients together in a bowl to hold it all.

    Mix the dressing ingredients together and pour over the salad stirring to coat well. I like to wait about 1/2 hour to let the flavors meld together.
    You may also switch nuts with walnuts chopped coarsely or even sliced almonds.

    Get ready to double or triple this one, it's THAT good! Anything that makes me say "more please" to broccoli is a good thing. Note that the broccoli wilts down some resulting in less than you start with. I didn't get any the last time I brought it to a picnic!

    Ingredients

    Dressing:

    Directions

    Combine broccoli florets, raisins, sunflower seeds, chopped onion, and peppers in a large serving bowl. In a separate bowl or large cup, whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Add dressing to the salad and toss to mix well; chill thoroughly before serving. Best made the night before.

    Broccoli salad serves 4 to 6.
