I am a new member and was scrolling down the lists and came across the "surprising brocolli salad" it caught my eye. Your recipe is almost the same as mine but, I leave the cheese out, add a sprinkle of Pine Nuts and add WHOLE red seedless grapes. It is common for my grandkids to clean up the bowl and aask if that is all I made, They wont eat Brocolli any other way. But they will eat a lot of it this way. I love it too. I capitalized WHOLE grapes, because I was short of grapes and decided to cut them in half, bad idea they added too much liquid. So the Whole ones work great.

Welcome to DC, bosco!!
It seems there are lots of ways to add and subtract things to this salad. I love it. I'll have to try it with the grapes.

Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with abandon or not at all. Oregon native transplanted to Chicago....

My ex-wife-in-law (don't ask but some of you understand) made that Asian salad with the ramen noodles - it called for sunflower seeds - oooops, she used the whole seeds instead of just the kernels.

How silly. Everyone knows you need a nutcracker.
