Broccoli Salad Tips
- “I feel the key is to blanche the broccoli for 30 seconds, then put into ice water. It takes the ‘raw’ off and makes it taste so much better.” — NANSEAB
- “Make a day or so before you wish to serve to meld the ingredients. I have used nonfat and low-fat mayonnaise and it still tastes great!” –JJOHN32
- “For dressing you can substitute real mayo for sour cream + mustard + lemon juice + salt. Really does not make any difference.” — OOUSHER
“This stuff is awesome. I didn’t like raw broccoli before now, but now this is my favorite vegetable dish.”
“Very tasty salad. Sweet like a coleslaw.”
“Best broccoli salad ever! I was hoping for leftovers, but my husband cleaned out the bowl! I didn’t nor wouldn’t change a thing…”
“I have used this recipe for two years now and we love it! I use a blend of colby and jack shredded cheese and black pepper to taste.” — Nancy L.
“This is an excellent salad to bring to potlucks, summer games, or a light salad with a sandwich at home.” — Jackie
