Chop and steam your broccoli until crisp-tender. Drain and set aside to cool.
While the broccoli is cooling, prep all ingredients, adding all but the dressing and toppers to a large bowl. Add the broccoli.
Whisk the dressing and pour over the bowl.
Toss (I massage in with my hands). Hit with salt & pepper.
