This is from Trisha Yearwood's 1st cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen that she wrote with her mom and sister. This is my husband's favorite broccoli salad. Trisha says "This is great served with barbecued pork ribs or prepared to take to a covered dish supper, because it's sturdy enough to stand at room temperature for a while without wilting. It also adds great color to a picnic spread." I've entered it as written, but we like to use red onion and golden raisins. Preparation time includes chilling time.
