Broccoli Salad

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.

About Karen Ann Lockyer

At the age of 21, I married my husband, AC and moved from Texas to Florida. I was a long way from home and missed my family. So I began cooking the recipes my Mom had cooked. I quickly became a Mom and wanted to give my children the same experience I had growing up with meals around the dinner table every night. I started with the classics like chicken and dumplings, pot roast, chicken enchiladas and desserts. Every good meal has to end with something sweet. Now my children, Lauren, 22 and AJ, 20 are grown. I spend my time in the kitchen expanding my cooking skills and writing down recipes. I am here to share with you the recipes I grew up on and the ones my kids and AC love. I also travel with AC on his business trips and try to find great restaurants and food along the way. I attribute my love for cooking and food to my family who always encourage me and enjoy being my guinea pigs.
