This salad is very refreshing. It was so yummy, we didn't have enough to fully satisfy our new craving for broccoli salad. The children are hoping we have more again soon. I did go light on the red pepper at first, but will only increase that slowly over time, until we figure out what 'pinch' means for our family. Also, just to cut down on dishes (we don't have a dishwasher, & we are a busy family), we cheated by draining & rinsing the broccoli right in its pan, then adding a bit of ice to some water in the same pan. After it cooled fully (hardly any time at all), we continued by draining the broccoli very well (but gently) using a towel, since we do have a clothes' washer! *grin* Then we put the broccoli back into the pot & added the salad dressing in the pot before presenting it in a nice, oversized soup-bowl sized bowl. It was lovely, & it chilled quickly in the fridge. Chilling truly is not needed for this to be enjoyable; both my daughter & I sampled some right after mixing in the dressing. However, the salad also chills very well; which we know because we had to wait for the main dish to be done)-We used a hand blender in a tall cup to blend the dressing & didn't have to even lightly chop the garlic as it blended right in.(2Make for a crowd (which we might), make dressing in a jar!)Then, after folding the dressing into the salad, we simply washed the blender & the cup together with hot water. It was so little mess for such a beautiful salad. Thanks, Chef John!
