Broccoli Salad

I am an ardent fan of Sweet Tomatoes and I make it a point to go there often. The food is not only awesome to the taste, but also nutritious. Being a vegetarian, or rather, eggitarian, I treasure going there. You have so many varieties of salads, soups, fruits and bakery items in store in the buffet, that your belly would rather tell you - "NEXT TIME PLEASE" or "GIVE ME AN INTERMISSION".. haha

I found their Broccoli Salad really marvelous. It has a touch of sweetness, good crunch, is fresh and vibrant. In fact, it contains bacon, which I used to filter while having, so my recipe too refrains from using bacon pieces. Quoting the recipe for you my friends...
