My favorite part about this recipe is that the dressing uses mayonnaise as a base. You’re probably wonder why and it’s because most mayonnaise has a whopping 0 carbs but pack a tasty punch without over consuming the other flavors.
The different flavors in this recipe each bring their own unique component that take this recipe from OK to delicious.
Most broccoli recipes suggest to serve immediately, which you could, but refrigerating it for at least an hour gives the flavors ample time to combine. A great part of this broccoli salad is that it makes a good base for any customizing you’d like to make like adding in ham, sunflower kernels, or cashews.
