After posting the Bunny Tail Cake Balls yesterday, I thought I'd go "lighter" today and post a salad. Specifically, Crunchy Broccoli Salad with Homemade Sweet & Sour Dressing.
In about a zillion other places, this is called Oriental Broccoli Salad. But who wants to be like everybody else? Not me!! So I call it Crunchy Broccoli Salad and it is one of most favorite salads ever.
Now, since it is actually posted in about a zillion other places (as I've already mentioned), you may all already know about this recipe.
But if by some miracle, you haven't had this salad before - I'd encourage you to give it a try! It's pretty easy to put together and it's really really good.
But I must warn you - it makes a lot and for us, it's not a good salad for leftovers . Even with my large family of 8, this makes more than we can eat in a meal.
So... what's a girl to do who loves this salad, but hates to throw out the extra? I make it for large family get-togethers... like Easter. Or I make it for Potluck dinners at church.
And it's always, always, always a hit!
One more thing about this salad... I had a hard time getting a picture of it that really captured how yummy it is.
I love the overall look of these pictures, but you can't see the dressing that I drizzled over it all. It's there, I promise - you just can't really see it.
And I had to individually place every single pecan and ramen noodle... because they wouldn't play nice and sit right on top to have their picture taken! Darned uncooperative foods!!
So if you make this salad, be sure to let me know what you think!Print
