I make this all the time but I thought I would share my modifications. I'm told I make the best! Lol! First finely chop your broccoli. I think that is what makes people love my salad. Instead of or in addition to grapes you can use raisins or for the holidays dried cranberries! I use red onions (more color) and green onions. I put the crumbled bacon in a side dish to garnish. I use the sugar and mayo (use low fat - very delicious) in the same ratio but add 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar. Everyone wants this recipe and you will get compliment after compliment for it plus it is very healthy. Read More

The dressing is very good with lime instead of vinegar and I used jerked chicken instead of bacon. It's becoming a favorite! Read More

Very good recipe. I do not like salads too sweet hence I reduced the quantity of sugar. As I am a vegetarian I used soy bacon. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
