Broccoli Salad Recipe

11/30/12

The other week I had this broccoli salad at my parent’s new church…it was YUMMY. I didn’t get the recipe but took note of some of the ingredients in the salad before I devoured 2 helpings…hehe. I looked online for recipes and decided to use ingredients I had and tweak a few recipes with my own twist. I made this salad last night and it was good (along with homemade meatloaf, skillet green beans and cornbread muffins. yum)….my brother and sister in law had dinner with us and Rebecca loved it (my hubby and Erik won’t touch it of course). So I told her I would post this 🙂

This is my OWN version and I am not always good at measuring things..I eyeball. So don’t freak out when I say “handfuls” in the recipe….it’s my best guess of what I did. If you feel something is too much/little then adjust for you 🙂

 Aren’t these pics just pretty? I have truly been enjoying the beauty of fruits and veggies God created for us!
