in our kitchen :: broccoli salad

My dear mother-in-law originally shared this recipe with me.  I first made it in the summer of 2002 when Jay and I hosted a baby shower for my sister.  Over the years I have adapted it a bit and it is always my ‘go to’ salad for potlucks and gatherings.

The poppy seed dressing, for sure, is what makes it so delicious.  I have tried a few other dressings, even attempted to make it from scratch, but it never tastes ‘just right’.  If you can’t find the dressing locally and would like to try it, you can find it online here and here.   I always have it stock piled in the pantry.  It is that good!

  1. Gee Mel – Ali and I were just talking about this salad – have decided to make it for the luncheon after the memorial service – I told her you use a special dressing and I thought it was Paul Newmans – hope I can find the Brianna’s brand. Good stuff!!
