{mom’s broccoli salad}

The classic broccoli salad.  Everyone’s had a version of this salad before.  Some with grapes.  Some with almonds.  I’ve seen so many different varieties.  But this one – it’s sweet, salty + crunchy.   A house favorite, for sure.  My Mom has been making it for years.  It holds up well for leftovers too.  Not the healthiest.  Put a scoop over your greens and your set.  Ps….it’s addicting!!!

This salad goes great as any side dish.  Give it a shot and let me know how you like it 🙂
