“My Grandmother used to make this dish for Thanksgiving, she simply called it Bavarian Salad but it is a type of broccoli mold. It took several attempts to copy it but I finally have it exactly like hers. It is a simple recipe and one of those dishes either you love it or you don't. Those who like it will gobble it down, ones who don't like it probably won't eat it.”
