After looking at over 300 Broccoli Salad Recipes on RecipeZaar to be sure I wasn't duplicating something that had already been posted, it would seem that the last thing that RecipeZaar needs is another Broccoli Salad Recipe. However, even though there are several recipes that are similar, this one has not been posted.
Every time I take this anywhere I hear, "This is the best Broccoli Salad I have ever tasted", and I get many requests for the recipe, so I figured that posting on RecipeZaar was a good way to share it with all of those people, and introduce them to RecipeZaar at the same time. I had five requests for it just last night.
This recipe makes enough for a large group, so if you are fixing it for a small gathering or family dinner, cut it in half.
