"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."

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.

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!
