Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad | Real Housemoms

Broccoli Salad.  What can I say?  It doesn’t sound that great, right?  As kids we had to be told to eat our broccoli, unless it was covered in cheese.  At least, that’s how it was in most houses.  Raw broccoli was another thing entirely!  I’d eat it if I was starving and I could submerge dip it in ranch dressing.  Then, as I got older, I realized that I could eat almost as much raw broccoli as I could handle and loose weight.  I didn’t always enjoy it but I did enjoy not being hungry, so I ate it.  But THIS Broccoli Salad is a game changer!

It is so good and has so much flavor that I could sit down and eat it all, and I’ve come close!  I was inspired by a salad that we’d buy at Costco from Sweet Tomatoes.   I wanted to have some the other day but didn’t want to make my way to Costco, mainly because I can’t be trusted to walk out with only the salad.  I switch some things up to use what I had on hand, but the flavor is great!  My husband called it phenomenal!   I’d say that’s a pretty good compliment.  This salad is going to be popping up in my kitchen a lot more frequently now that I can make it without the trip to Costco. :)

    I made this for my mom on Mother’s Day, since she asked for it. I had dried cranberries on hand and used them instead of raisens and we loved it! This is always a fav, and I liked how you lightened it up! Darla

    So thrilled I have this recipe!! I too cannot walk out of Costco with just the salad. Also, happy to have the dressing recipe as I would love to use it on more than this salad.
