RV Cooking Show – Adirondack and Broccoli Salad

author image

June 12, 2008

Explore the wilds of the magnificent Adirondack Park in upstate New York and then learn how to make some amazing broccoli salad…perfect for any picnic or potluck. When in the vast and wonderful Adirondack Park you may hear folks refer to being inside the “blue line”. When the park was first outlined on a map it was done so in blue ink – thus the blue line.

With 6.1 million acres of public and private land, and literally thousands of lakes and ponds, Adirondack Park is an absolute outdoor recreational paradise. You can bike, hike, swim, boat, tour historic locations, or simply enjoy the magnificient views. Visit the famous great camps, Camp Santanoni and Camp Sagamore, see the luxurious cottages and truly spectacular preserves. You can’t get to Camp Santanoni in your RV, but you can hike, bike, ride a horse or a wagon for almost 5 miles to reach the main area.
Come explore the wilds of the Adirondack Park with me by watching the video below.

From Fort William Henry on beautiful Lake George to Fort Ticonderoga to Lake Placid to the Adirondack Museum to the awe-inspiring 46 High Peaks the Adirondacks offers something for every camper in the family.

I got this delicious broccoli salad recipe from a good Lake George friend. It is easy to make and you will watch it quickly disappear in any potluck. Try it today!

If you’d like the recipe in a printer-friendly format, you can find it at the RV Cooking Show.

Here’s to happy camping,

  1. Hi Louella,

    Indeed, you are correct…Fort Ti is on Lake Champlain – not Placid. I got it right in the vid (in fact, I’ve been there several times over the three summers spent in the area) but got the typed message wrong. Have you srtolled the “King’s Garden” at Fort Ti…that’s another great thing I’d advise viewers to do while there.

    Do try the recipe and let me know what everyone thinks! I just served it for Father’s Day to rave reviews.

    I LOVE Vermont, too…perhaps there’s a show there in the future.

    Thanks again for catching the typo.


  2. Fort Ticonderoga is on Lake Champlain not Lake Placid, but I loved the recipe and am planning on making it for my fanily reunion. Fort Ti is just a short ferry ride from Vermont. On the Vermont side, anyone visiting Fort Ticonderoga should visit Mount Independence. The history on both sides of Lake Champlain is very interesting. Many battles were fought on both sides of the lake.

  3. The recipe is simply delicious and the Adirondacks are beautiful. Thanks for the comment – E:>
