🥦 A note on the broccoli: This salad is typically made with raw broccoli, but if you would prefer a slightly softer salad, you can lightly blanch (1-2 minutes) the broccoli. If you choose to blanch your broccoli, make sure it is fully cooled off and patted dry before making the salad.

Make the dressing. This is a really easy dressing to make and is a keeper! You can use it on a variety of lettuce-based salads as well.
