My aunt used to make this delicious side dish when I would visit, and I recently discovered just how easy it is to make. A great way to encourage kids to eat their broccoli! Blanching of broccoli or any form of cooking broccoli is not recommended for this recipe; it tastes best with raw, chilled broccoli.

This was really tasty! I used Good Seasons Garlic & Herb and less olive oil due to personal preference. It was simple and quite flavorful. Thanks for sharing - I wouldn't have thought to do this! Read More

I have tried a lot of broccoli recipes over the years because I am determined to like broccoli but this is my favorite (and probably the healthiest and easiest) by far. Salad lovers should enjoy this recipe even if they don't love broccoli. I like that it can be easily modified using a variety of dried salad dressing mixes--and that you can make dry mixes to suit your own tastes. I think will be trying a ranch vinaigrette version made with homemade ranch mix next. Read More

This is an interesting recipe. While it's not something I'd crave I did find myself picking at it while waiting for the rest of dinner to be ready. I don't think I'd plan to make it again but would use it if I found myself w/broccoli that needed used. I will greatly reduce the EVOO though because I had a pool of oil on plate. THANKS for the recipe! Read More
