Broccoli Salad Dressing
I love this creamy broccoli salad dressing and it’s super simple to make.
– Mayonnaise can be substituted with Miracle Whip if desired.
– I like to use honey but maple syrup will work too.

– To make this dressing healthier, substitute half of the mayonnaise for plain Greek yogurt.
– I think the fresh lemon is a must for this dressing.
