Love this salad! I halved the amount of dressing and used a bag of brocslaw and it was plenty for 4 people. I also like to mix everything a few hours ahead except the seeds and noodles which I add at the last minute so they stay crunchy. Read More

Great recipe I'll make it again for sure and I was asked for the recipe. I made for a crowd so I doubled the broccoli (two large banded bunches) but kept the other ingredients the same and it was great. I would definitely reduce the dressing if not making so much. Can't wait to make it again! UPDATE: I make this all the time now and it's always a hit. You have to cut the oil by half and then its perfect. I now use chopped red onion and also add dried cranberrys! Read More

I have made this great salad three times since Xmas. I prefer it made a day ahead. It turns out good if you use the bagged brocslaw as well. Thx for this recipe Jeri. Read More

Very yummy!! Instead of the white vinegar I used half apple cider vinegar and half white wine vinegar. Also I used the Oriental flavored ramen noodles. You really could make this a day ahead. That way the ramen noodles would absorb some of the dressing for extra flavor. Read More

I made this last night for dinner and I absolutely loved it! It was definately a nice change from steamed broccoli. I did think it was kind of oily next time I will reduce the dressing ingredients in half and add more broccoli. The texture was great the broccoli had a nice crunch to it but was not as tough as regular raw broccoli. At first I just thought it was an ok salad but as the night progressed I had to keep going back to eat more and even today I keep going into the kitchen for a bite here and there. I would recommend this to others. Enjoy! Read More

My husband and I absolutely loved this salad. Yes it was just as good the next day. My kids are not fond of sweet salad dressings so they were not big fans. All that to say I don't care! I'd make it again and again and can't wait until I have to bring a salad dish to the next family gathering. Thanks for a GREAT recipe. Read More
