Alyson's Broccoli Salad

JJOHN32

"Confirmed broccoli haters have changed their minds after tasting this salad. It is great for potlucks or buffet meals. Make a day or so before you wish to serve to meld the ingredients. I have used sugar substitutes for the white sugar and also used nonfat or low-fat mayonnaise and it still tastes great!"

I had trouble with this recipe. It was way too juicy. I used one head of broccoli first and then added another and it was still too juicy. I have had broccoli salad before and it was fantastic...

This is a good recipe, but I don't think everyone made it right. A few reviewers mentioned the bacon and the sunflower seeds getting soft. The recipe states to put them in right before serving...

I have made this salad for years.....without the raisins and sesame seeds. It is always a hit! Another suggestion, if you are trying to cut out sugar, make it with "Splenda" sweetner---tastes ...
