Broccoli Crunch Salad Broccoli for Broccoli Crunch Salad Salad Dressing Ingredients for Broccoli Crunch Salad Broccoli Crunch Salad ingredients Broccoli Crunch Salad recipe We have a simple Broccoli Crunch Salad recipe for you today. I don’t really have much to say about this salad other than it’s the perfect thing to bring on a picnic, or to a BBQ. Growing up in Idaho my high school was right next to this market called the CO-OP, and I would go there a lot for their pre made salads at lunch. They also had a Broccoli salad there and I loved it so much. The crunch factor was intense, and also awesome because it wasn’t lettuce. I’m not really a fan of steamed or cooked broccoli, so in this form is really the only way I want to have it. Yum. Broccoli Crunch Salad for everyone! Teri

    This is definitely different than the broccoli salad that I’m used to but I can’t WAIT to try it!!

    Hi – is mustard supposed to be listed in the ingredients? I see it in the photos I think.

    This is everything I love in a salad. My mom used to make a version of this with raisins and pine nuts, but I love the cashew and currants idea!!!

    Love this take on broccoli salad. Ever tried this with dried cranberries in place of the currants? I never have currants in the house when I want them!

    This is a slightly different twist to the broccoli salad I make and love, so I am anxious to try yours to compare.

    Hi Terry & Jenny! I’m loving your recipes! I don’t have apple cider vinegar or mustard, will the taste be significantly different without the two? Else, what can I substitute these two ingredients with? :)

      If you have white wine vinegar that should work too…you just want a little something to cut through the richness of the mayo
