Broccoli Salad

I’ve seen lots of other bloggers make a Broccoli Salad similar to this one and it seemed like usually the recipes had been passed down from grandmas, moms, aunts, etc. You know, family recipes. And family recipes are often my favorite recipes. (: Did we have a Broccoli Salad recipe that I just couldn’t remember eating growing up? Turns out…yes.  I asked my Mom for her Broccoli Salad recipe and this is the one she told me about.

We changed two small things from my Mom’s original recipe. First, we swapped out raisins for red grapes, for no other reason than to try something new. And second, we added sunflower seeds for a little crunch. We served this salad on Sunday of Labor Day weekend when Kara and Cliff had family over for dinner. Our aunts, uncles and cousin finally got a tour of their new house. We made the salad the day before and popped it in the fridge until we were ready to serve. I love broccoli, and I love it even more when combined with bacon and cheese!! We served it along with corn on the cob, hot dogs and sliders. It was an excellent dinner!

Here’s what you’ll need

Add all the salad ingredients to a large bowl

Pour the dressing on top and toss until evenly coated

I love quick recipes…that are delicious too!!
