Unusual Broccoli Salad

Recipe by Anita Harris

Don't let the ingredients throw you off. This is an excellent tasting salad! Great for potlucks as it makes alot. I got this recipe out the Southern Living issue of December 1990.

First I have to say that I have never met a salad I didn't like. I am not sure what went wrong, but I tasted this right after making it and thought it might improve after sitting. I took it out of the fridge the next day and tasted it and I still couldn't eat it. The same the following day. I had to throw the whole thing out. The olives made it very salty. I'm wondering if there is an error in the ingredients list. I won't give this any stars, as I am certain that there has to be an error in this recipe.
