Broccoli Salad

I've never been one for broccoli salad. I don't really know why, or if I've even tried it. Well, that has changed! Tonight we needed a new way for the kids to eat their veggies & broccoli & cauliflower were filling the fridge. So, here it is, my own take on broccoli salad. I left out the raisins, simply because Mike actually loves broccoli salad & requested sans-raisins. Being not much of a raisin fan myself, I was happy to oblige. It is also pretty versatile, if you need to change up the veggies, use bacon instead of prosciutto, make it nut-free, etc. I also use the soy-free vegenaisse because Ry doesn't tolerate soy, but you could use whatever works for you.
