Broccoli Salad Recipe


Broccoli with its anti-cancer compounds is healthiest when consumed uncooked. However, it had been suggested that blanching the florets for a minute would still keep it firm while taking away that raw flavor.

This tasty broccoli salad recipe is a stunning addition to any main entrée. A favorite at picnics and barbecues, it's easy to make and filled with flavor and texture. If you mix this the night before, all the flavors can cure for the best taste.

Broccoli Salad


1 large head broccoli, broken into small flowerettes
