Broccoli Pasta Salad

The holidays are coming and there is nothing better than to have a salad prepared and ready to serve. This recipe was handed down to me from my mother, who was a terrific cook.  This was one of her favorite salads and is perfect for entertaining.  Serve with warm crusty rolls for lunch, serve with grilled meat or fish and you have a dinner entree.
