Great salad for a change of pace. I really had my doubts about this one, but after letting it sit for a couple of hours it was delicious. The broccoli does not need to be blanched first because the dressing "cooks" it just a little bit so the salad is crisp-tender. I also like that this salad does not need a lot of dressing. I just thought 1 cup of cheese was too much. Go easy on the salt or omit. Thanks for posting.
