Eat Your Vegetables: Broccoli Salad Eat Your Vegetables: Broccoli Salad Advocate staff photo by ARTHUR D. LAUCKFor a different take on a broccoli salad, try Broccoli, Date and Nut Salad. It is tossed with a honey- and lemon-flavored dressing. Corinne Cook March 20, 2013 Comments Try this combination of fresh broccoli with chopped dates and toasted pecans. The salad is dressed with olive oil, fresh lemon juice and a teaspoon of honey. Add cubes of feta cheese or big shavings of Parmesan cheese if you prefer.
