A fresh Broccoli Grape Salad

A couple weeks ago I wrote about a luncheon I hosted with some old friends and mentioned one of them brought a Broccoli Grape Salad.  Well Kay, the salad maker, sent me the recipe and is graciously allowing me to share the recipe with you.  It is a super easy recipe that can be prepared in just a few minutes with only a few ingredients.  It’s a healthy salad that even the grands gobbled up.  I made a couple of substitutions to the dressing but had everything else I needed either in the fridge or pantry to make it. 
Broccoli Grape Salad

I had a 12 oz bag of pre cut broccoli florets designed for steaming in the bag that I used but cutting the florets myself would have been easy enough and cheaper.  I had a single slice of a sweet red onion already chopped and a couple of green onions that I cut into small pieces.  That was a little more than the recipe calls for but I loved the flavor the onions added.  I used some really wonderfully sweet seedless red grapes but Kay's recipe says you can use green grapes too.  I did not have the nuts but no one noticed.  I do think it will enhance the salad to have them though.   For the dressing I used red wine vinegar and mayonnaise with olive oil and it tasted great.  I’m sure it is a salad I’ll be making for Sunday Pot Luck soon.  I hope you try it and let me know what you think.  Thanks Kay for sharing your recipe with me and my blog readers.
