This recipe is similar to the same delicious broccoli salad recipe I use. My version has red wine vinegar which is delicious. This salad is always the first to go at potlucks and you will always be asked for the recipe!
A family favorite for many years though I do change it up from time to time. Sub cranraisins for the raisins trade almonds for toasted sunflower seeds change the red onions to green onions. Definitely try adding red grapes sliced in half for a little something extra. As this recipe is so very versatile it's easy to change to your own family's preferences. Great for bbq's and potlucks as it holds it's texture without becoming soggy enjoy!
This is the recipe I was looking for! THANKYOU! I've made it totally according to and it was delicious! I have also made it to be "diet friendly" by replacing sugar with "Splenda" (sugar substitute) and Fat Free Miracle Whip. It tasted the same and made some of the dieters at our family gathering very happy!
Love it love it love it! Everyone at our BBQ loved it and many asked for the recipe. I mixed the mayo/vinegar/sugar with the red onions the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I then added the other ingredients the morning of. This kept the broccoli fresh (not soggy) but helped the onions relax. It tasted perfect!! Just a side note - I added golden raisins and roasted sunflower seeds.
Interesting none of the reviews mentioned that if you blanch your broccoli for just a minute it will stay a beautiful bright green color that is so much more appetizing even a few days later if you are lucky enough to have around that long!
This is a really awesome salad! I made this twice in a couple days and I have to say it was much better with a little revision for my taste. This recipe is PERFECTLY fine the way it is! I made it to the exact specifications of the recipe the first time and then remade it with what I thought it needed. I changed the mayo for half yogurt half low fat mayo combo because it gives it a little something extra and balances out the flavors. I reduced the sugar the second time by just a tad over 1/4 of a cup. I liked the original recipe but it was really sweet and the raisins were really sweet so it started to be overly sweet. Finally the onion is fine let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 15 hours. I understand what the others are saying with the onion initially but after about 15 hours it's hardly noticeable! The vinegar mellows out the flavor and you can hardly taste it! If you want an even more delicate onion flavor I've also seen this recipe with shallots. Hope this helps!:)
I am hard to please and afraid of watery mayo based salads- BUT. This was the most delicious salad I have ever had. I placed my broccoli in boiling water for 30 secs and shocked it in ice water then drained it. (This made it crunchy yet tender and bright green) I also used craisins and sunflower seeds...and a TBL of Splenda instead of all the sugar (which was PLENTY). I only had raspberry wine vinegar which was fantastic. OH and I used a splash of lemon juice to brighten it up. I think there are a lot of different ways you can go with this salad. I could have eaten the entire bowlful! This would be a hit at any potluck or as a cooling side dish in the summer. WONDERFUL

There are many better recipes for broccoli salad on AR. This one tastes candy sweet to me. If you don't care for a really sweet salad try one of the others of your preference (mine is about 1-2 Tbsp. each sugar & vinegar per cup of mayo) and rate the dressing you like instead of cutting the sugar in this one and then giving it 5 stars.
