Raw or Cooked Broccoli?
Broccoli salad can be made with raw or cooked broccoli. If you do not like the raw broccoli, you can steam it. I used steamed broccoli in this salad. But on the other hand, raw broccoli is used in many other broccoli salad recipes.
If you do not want to steam it, you can blanch it. Put the broccoli pieces in boiling water. Boil it for 1 minute. Remove it from water and transfer it to the ice water to stop the further cooking process. Drain the broccoli before using it.
But it is completely up to you. You can prepare your salad version and have it as you like it.
