    I am totally making this tonight but substituting bacon bits for olives (ugh)! Thanks for the recipe! That is the one thing I want of my Mom’s more then anything…and the cards that were written in my Grandmother’s handwritting

    That’s a great idea. Bacon bits will taste great with this!

    I nabbed my aunt’s cookbook and recipe collection when she suddenly passed away right before my first baby was born. I didn’t even ask the rest of the family because I knew they wouldn’t care (I’m the only other one that really cooks) – I marched right into her townhome and claimed the huge box of books and magazines and a box of recipe cards and an accordion file of magazine clippings. It’s like having a piece of her. Although I still need to dig out her recipe for Italian Meatloaf. It was the BEST. 🙂

    I know what you mean- Part of what makes them special is that she marked many of her favorites with old deposit slips, copies of other recipes, etc. I love finding things in books, particularly when I know the prior owner. 🙂

    I made this salad on Saturday and LOVE IT!! I do have a question though, why does it look like there are walnuts in the salad in the picture? Is that the olives?
    Thanks!!

    That’s the olives and pimentos. 🙂

    I like that too, but I put raisins in it.

    My grandmother wrote my sister & I each a cookbook..told stories along the way, wrote poems and explained where she had eaten and where the recipe originated. I love pulling it out on occasions but especially the year before she passed away she wrote her homemade dressing recipe (not in the book) and told me how much she apprecaited passing along her favorite meal…turkey & dressing. I read it and cry every Thanksigiving…then smile from ear to ear when everyone thanks me for making it “just like grandma” Its the best treasure. If my house caught on fire…that book would be one thing I’d try to grab.

    I’d make that with Kalamata olives instead of the pimiento stuffed ones.

    Love Kalamata olives! If you look online, there are TONS of variations on broccoli salad, with lots of different ingredients to shake things up. This recipe was so good, I’m inspired to try more. 🙂
