Low-Carb Broccoli Salad

“A good use for broccoli when you buy it in bulk from Costco. It’s something different when you are eating low carb.” – Calla Ferre

“You can of course use regular sugar in place of Splenda. I like my dressing a little less sweet, so I only use 1/4 Cup Sugar.” – April Ferre
