Cut the stems off the broccoli. For this recipe you just need the florets. You will also need to dice your onion.
Add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl. Give it a quick mix.
Add the dressing ingredients to the salad. If you are using a bowl with a lid, just put the lid on and give it a good shake! This will help spread out the dressing and mix it together. If you don't have a lid, just make sure you mix well.
Chill to serve. Allowing the broccoli salad to marinate overnight is preferable.
