Broccoli Salad

I saw a broccoli salad recipe on a Facebook food group about a year ago. It inspired and morphed into my own version. How colorful and pretty is this? It seems like there’s a lot going on here, but somehow it all works really well together. It’s a perfect summer side or pot luck dish. It even gets my kids to eat broccoli. So you know this recipe is a keeper!
