Inevitably, any time I set a platter of fresh vegetables out for a family get together, guess which veggie get’s left behind?

You got it. 


It’s obviously my families least favorite veggie.

Including me. 

Heck, who am I kidding? Mostly me.

So imagine my surprise when I fell in love with this broccoli salad the first time I tried it at a company potluck!

I swear I could have eaten the whole darn bowl, folks!

I later found out that there are so many variations to this recipe, but frankly, I’m a firm believer in not trying to change perfection.

A huge thank you to my friend and co-worker, Brenda for giving me her delicious recipe! 

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Serves 8
The combination of crunchy veggies, sweet raisins and tangy dressing are heaven in a bowl.
