broccolisaladsmallBroccoli Salad seems to be a staple dish at every potluck, BBQ and party we attend.  Everyone loves it!  Unfortunately for me, most people make it with bacon and I am a vegetarian.  When I make Broccoli Salad, I use this vegetarian-friendly recipe.  It is so delicious that nobody ever misses the bacon!
