World's Best Broccoli Salad

I have to admit that I have stolen this recipe from my favorite little lunch cafe in Whistler, BC. It is the best spot in Whistler to get homemade sandwiches, salad, burgers, baked goods, you name it. It's called Ingrids and I highly recommend trying it out. I absolutely love their veggie burgers, turkey burgers and salads. I once had this amazing broccoli salad and couldn't stop thinking about it for days. 

I flew back to Toronto (where I lived at the time) and was still thinking about it. I called them one day and begged for the recipe. They were nice enough to give me a rough outline of what was in it. I tried it and turned out really well! Here is the recipe, feel free to add in anything else!

- Broccoli
- Red Grapes
- Pecans
- Green Onions
- Butter
- Garlic
- Mayo 
- Vinegar
- Sugar
- Salt/Pepper

1. Cut up broccoli, green onions and grapes
2. Saute pecans in a hot skillet with butter and garlic
3. Mix sauce in a small bowl: Mayo, vinegar, sugar, salt/pepper
4. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and chill in fridge until ready to serve

This salad can be made with lots of dressing or very little. I tried it in the above photos with very little dressing. The ingredients are fresh and tasty that it doesn't need much dressing.



  1. I am going to make this tonight for lunch tomorrow. I may throw in some dijon for a little kick and depth which should go nicely with the broccoli and grapes. Thanks!

    1. That sounds great Ed! Let me know how it goes.

  2. I would really like to know the measurements for this recipe.
