Recipe by Leslie in Texas

I've made this salad many times over the last 25 plus years and it's always been a hit. It's originally from an issue of Southern Living. You can add some red bell pepper to this as well as thinly sliced carrots. Chilling time is cook time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove flowerettes from broccoli and cut into bite-sized pieces. Reserve stalks for another use or peel and cut into bite-sized pieces and use in salad.
  2. Combine broccoli, mushrooms, pepper, celery, and cauliflower in a large bowl and toss lightly.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients, mix well, and pour over vegetables.
  4. Cover and chill at least 3 hours.
  5. *Note: I've put all the dressing ingredients into a food processor along with the onion, diced, and pulsed it to "grate" the onion. Stir in the poppy seeds and pour over the salad.
