Annie's Broccoli Salad

"My mother is a fabulous cook and I just love her Broccoli Salad. Always one of the first things to go at family dinners and potlucks! You can also substitue 1 cup cauliflower for 1 cup broccoli for a nice Broccoli and Cauliflower salad. Prep/cooking time does not include chill time or cooking the bacon."

    My sister has made this broccoli salad for many family gatherings, holidays, bridal and baby showers... you name it. Its so good that my family actually fights over the leftovers. I am making it for a picnic tomorrow and looking forward to eating it again.

    I made this to take to thanksgiving a couple of years ago, and my family loved it. It has been my designated, "you must bring this" dish ever since!

    This is a great recipe. I modified is significantly to make it a main dish. I added chopped chicken, chopped celery, gluten-free pasta, and grated a carrot into it. So delish! Thanks for the dish!

    Made this last night. Very, very good.. Made some changes for our tastes: a small pinch of sugar only (ie: 1/4 Splenda package). 3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar and only a small bit of cheese. Also, cooked broccoli for 1 min in microwave. I have added this to my "tried and true". Thanks so much!

    Fantastic and easy. I made the dressing the day before. I prepared all the remaining ingredients the day before as well and just before serving I assembled it. Very popular salad. Thanks for the recipe

    We really enjoyed this salad. I cooked the broccoli in the mivrowave for 40 seconds just to soften them a bit. I subbed regular vinegar for apple cider. Other than that I followed this recipe as listed. Thanks so much.


2007 I thought that I would edit my home page...its been over two years, so I its time to update! I have lived in beautiful New Mexico for the last few years (Albuquerque), after 20 years of living on the West Coast (San Francisco and Seattle). I love many things about New Mexico - the perfect weather, in particular; the sunsets; the open land; and the great Southwest food - but also sometimes miss the energy of bigger cities. I am a mental health therapist, who loves my work! I love to cook (a passion that I discovered after getting married). Rather than cooking a few favorites on a regular basis, I prefer to collect recipes (primarily from the Internet), and try new things often (in fact, my husband jokes that he will try a new dish that he loves and then never see it again :-)). I also love to read, write, travel, work on personal growth, and study/learn. I am a total water baby, who lives in the desert, so I love traveling to tropical locations, where I especially love to snorkle and boggie board! I am very happily married to my best friend, soulmate, partner, and greatest cheerleader and supporter, and we have three grown children, and four grandchildren (so far :-))I am a total foodie (I "live to eat" instead of "eat to live.") :-) I love everything about; the delicious scents of a yummy dish, as it cooks; the beautiful presentation of wonderful food; dining out; dining in; the taste of great food; sitting around the table, with friends and family, eating, talking and laughing; nurturing those I love by cooking for them...all of the senusal pleasures that food brings! My favorite Internet site for yummy recipes is this one - and I almost always choose recipes with five-star ratings, so please keep on reviewing! :-)
