Love this!! My mom and I picked up a pineapple broccoli salad at a deli the other day and we knew we could make an even better version at home. This is the recipe!!! We did omit the cheese out of personal preference and used 1/2 of the dressing since we don't like salads that are really creamy. The ingredients work so well together. Thanks for posting!
