This is absolutely delicious! It should be called Mango-Bango-Broccoli Rocks! What a great flavor combination. I think the dressing is a great addition to any salad and as another reviewer noted you can sub the crunch. I used rough chopped broccoli florettes and fresh chopped mango and navel orange segments instead of canned mandarin oranges -- didn't have cashews but substituted a trail-mix of toasted almonds & sunflower seeds and the crunch held up well. The mango just adds the perfect balance that the oranges alone wouldn't do. Also didn't have 4 hours to wait & chilled for only 2 hours so added just a little more ranch -- and it was fantastic! Thanks Jen! Read More

I really wanted to like this because I love the combination of fruits and veggies but the dressing is odd. The horseradish ruins it. 2 stars for the interesting veg/fruit combo. Read More

I was intrigued by the unusual ingredients in this recipe and skeptical that it would work. Well it did! This is a visually beautiful broccoli salad and tastes good as well. The horseradish is subtle and adds interest to the dressing. I did not use all the dressing and less onion than called for. I also added the cashews just before serving so they would not get soft. After tasting the salad I felt it needed some kick so I added crushed red pepper flakes. Thanks for sharing jen. Read More

Wow. Very good and very different. I love this dressing and the combination of ingredients and flavors work very well together. I switched out the oranges for a handful of dried cranberries and toasted almonds for the cashews. This goes into my favorite file. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was fantastic. A great cool salad for the summer. The cashew nut and oranges complimented each other. I used chopped mango in this instead of cubes so we didn't get just a bite of mango. I also like the kick of the horseradish. Read More

I made this salad and it wad really good. I think next time I may use less ranch dressing because it turned out a little saucy. But still a delicious summer salad. Read More

Your Note| Edit I did the best with what I had in the house and it was great. I didn't have and don't like ranch; so I used blue cheese instead. I used a white onion in place of the red one. Almonds intead of cashews (but I do think cashews would be better). r. Read More
