When we opened the Café in 2004, cold broccoli salad was very trendy and new. Wanting to incorporate new with our classic Southern, this became our standard side to our sandwiches. I recommend selecting a whole head of broccoli and cutting the florets yourself.
This simple vinaigrette is the perfect accompaniment to your spring salad. The slightly bitter chocolate balances the sweet strawberries and candied almonds. The vinaigrette is easy to prepare and will be a great dressing to have on hand in your refrigerator.
