I have broccoli growing in my garden this year for the first time and can’t wait togive this recipe a try! It sounds yummy. Thanks
My husband just made a similar recipe last night we love it so much. We chop our broccoli and cauliflower in a chopper until they are quite small and then make the salad as in the recipe. Everywhere we take it people ask us for the recipe not realizing it is the same one they have. It really makes a difference. Enjoy ;o}
This salad looks yummy. Nice for a hot day when you don’t want to cook.
Merry Christmas to you all and may everyone there be blessed in the new year! Thank you for the many blessings and great advice you give us through out the year! Tawra.I found a gnome at a estate sale with a kitchen apron on looking stressed out and thought of you because you collect gnomes Lol!
