How to Make Broccoli Salad Recipe

When you learn how to make this broccoli salad recipe you will surely get rave reviews. My niece, Kristie shared it with me because I loved it every time she made it when I have been in Ohio.

Her husband, Brandon always gets the job of cutting the broccoli. I credit the delicious flavor of the salad with the way he cuts the broccoli. Brandon sits and very meticulously cuts the broccoli head into very small pieces. (That is why he gets the job.) You may think my remark is strange but I do believe that it makes this salad more delicious than any other broccoli salad that I have eaten. The flavor of all the ingredients blends through Kristie’s salad better because it is cut so small. Thanks Kristie and Brandon for sharing your recipe.
