I have spent the majority of my life as a vegetarian and don't usually see any meat dishes that I crave, except for Brocolli Salad. I LOVE brocolli and was very happy to find this vegetarian version of it. This recipe works great as listed, but since I have made it several times, I have tried changing it up. One thing I do is roast the pecans before adding them to the salad and it really improves an already fantastic dish. Also, I have been reading a lot about the benefits of chia seeds, so I add them in this dish as well and you really can't taste them, but I like knowing it ups the nutritional value of the salad. Most recently, I used Balsalmic vinegar rather than raspberry and there was a subtle difference. The Balsalmic felt a little more grown up, but I tend to feel that way about Balsalmic vs. other vinegars, so I could just be biased.
Great salad even without any additional modifications, though. Thanks so much for posting!
