Classic Broccoli Salad

Broccoli. Lovely fiber packed, vitamin C infused, cancer fighting veggie. It's one of my favorites. I'll scarf down the green stuff steamed, raw, roasted, diced, chopped, buttered, you name it. Now....if you have in your house a few picky tikes or hubby's  that turn up their nose at this delightful little green veggies try this delightful tasty salad :)

This is your potluck pleasin, recipe passed down from grandma, classic broccoli salad recipe. So now if you already have this recipe or a version of it I apologize. Otherwise, give it a try and you MIGHT just fall in love with this wonderful nutritional miniature tree.
