Broccoli Salad

You know how you will be stalking someones blog, then go to another, then go to another, then find yourself learning about a topic you had no idea you were interested in?  Like Russian Nesting Dolls or something? Yeah, that happens to me all the time. 

This is how I stumbled upon this lovely little salad.  Luckily, I was able to google the phrase "holiday broccoli salad" and the exact website website I got it from appeared.  Heck yeah.
