I know I used the wrong term for 'bunches' of broccoli ...so to be clear on that, we were shopping last night and bought two bundles at the local Krogers grocery store. Each of those bundles had 3 or 4 stalks of broccoli .....so we will use all seven of the stalks in the broccoli salad. You all probably knew this ...but just in case I figured I'd be as clear as possible. :D

DH and I love this salad, and I sometimes add raisins. I also blanch the broccoli for a few minutes at the beginning...this eliminates any "woody" texture and makes it an even prettier green.

This is very similar to Doc's recipe.

Just made it for the first time this past weekend and I LOVE it!

Pictured before and after tossing with the dressing.

Excellent!
