Broccoli Salad – Yummie!

[print_link] This dish is a constant favorite at our house.  Again and again the platter returns empty. So lets get to It! This one you can make in the morning and chill for dinner. It’s quick (after you get the water boiling) and fun!

Get a couple pounds of broccoli with stems is good. trim the small leaves from the stems and a bit of the end of the stem. Cut the Broccoli so the individual flowerettes have a long piece of stem with them. I just rotate the broccoli and trim off the piece that gives me a full little head of broccoli with a chunk of stem.
Blanch the broccoli in boiling water for 5 minutes – Drain the broccoli and put cold water on the broccoli to stop the cooking process.
