I posted this recipe on my blog a few weeks before Thanksgiving last year, and it has far and away been the most accessed recipe on my site every day since. It's based on the Sunshine Broccoli Salad we used to get from the grocery store deli in a small Iowa town we lived in, though I imagine many delis have their own versions. I prefer my broccoli nice and crisp, but if you don't, you can blanch the broccoli in boiling water for a couple of minutes to soften it first. We prefer it with bacon (of course!), but if you are looking for a completely no-cook side dish, it's great with ham as well.
