Every now and then I find a recipe that sounds really good. I save it, but it’s a rare day when I try something new. Except this time, because I tried broccoli salad from the Kitchn, and it’s a winner.
Deb at Smitten Kitchen wrote about craving this during her pregnancy. I don’t know what it is, but it’s absolutely true. I love this salad — I’ve eaten it four times this week. I think about it at the store. I think about it before I go to sleep. It’s hopeless. I’m addicted to a side dish.
I follow the recipe pretty closely, but I skip the red onion and sometimes add crumbled bacon. Deb varies the recipe with a blue cheese dressing. If you’re planning to eat it right away, use a smidge less vinegar. It’s best the second day, so it makes an ideal side dish to make ahead for an event. I’m bringing it to every potluck I attend from now ’til eternity.
