This morning, my DH harvested our broccoli. So I decided to make this salad. It is such a pretty dish. The dressing is amazingly delicious and is perfect for a light summer meal. I didn't add the 1/2 cup soy milk to the salad because I liked the dressing just as it is. I served this with a side of lightly steamed asparagus with crumbled goat cheese on top.
