I've been making this for years and everyone always loves it but I do add red onion and sunflower(shelled)seeds. I also like to make it with nonfat mayo and fresh bacon bits and 1/4 cup sugar. Try it!! Read More

My mother has been making this recipe forever and it's so simple and tasty. We have very few pot lucks where this salad isn't served. Our version is almost exactly the same except that we add a package of crumbled ramen noodles (without any of the seasonings). They add a yummy crunch and an additional texture. But otherwise this is a great recipe that tends to go over well with people with different likes and dislikes Read More

I have been making this salad for years. Out of all of the other submissions this salad is closest to the original (except for 1/2 cup of diced red onion). The dressing ingredients and measurements are from the original recipe. I have added cauliflower mixed with the broccoli dried cranberries or cherries instead of the raisins sunflower seeds and walnuts or pecans. Wherever I take this salad people ask for the recipe.

Very good.... I added grapes and thinly sliced red onion. Also because a few in my family are on a low-carb diet I substituted Splenda for the sugar and no one could tell the difference. This is a total keeper and I plan on making it for the 4th of July. Definately make this at least a day before!!!!!! Read More

This is an awesome recipe. I prefer using sliced grapes rather than raisins. Also I use 1/2 cup Splenda in place of the sugar. Read More
