🥗 Trending Salad
Beautiful Broccoli Salad: This salad is just enormous popular for all the big holidays: Easter, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, and, yes, Christmas! Here's a bit more about it:
this beautiful broccoli salad recipe is definitely a keeper! The recipe comes from an Amish woman in Navarre, Ohio. Navarre is at the northern edge of Ohio's "Amish archipelago." Some of you may know Navarre as home to the Nickle's Bread bakery, the smell of which permeates every corner and crack of the town. The rolling hills and temperate climate of this part of Ohio makes it ideal for growing gardens full of broccoli, some of which can be used in this delicious salad recipe. Give it a try!
