This recipe has been around for years. I have seen people add cubed cheese or tomatoes, but this is the combination I enjoy most.
I like making broccoli salad when I pick up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store. This is also great to take as a side dish for summer cook outs. You can make this and keep it in the refrigerator for a few days.
The first time you make this recipe keep it close to the measurements given. After you have made it, adjust the ingredients to your liking. These measurements are a guideline of where to start. If you like the salad on the sweeter side add more golden raisins and more sugar to the dressing. If you like it more tangy, add a bit more vinegar to the dressing.

1 large head broccoli, cut into florets
