If you like broccoli and bacon, this is something you have to try. My family loves this recipe. They make it whenever there are going to be guests. It tastes great and happens to be rather colorful.

This is one of my favorite quick salad recipes. I do cut the sugar back by half and I like to use white wine vinegar. This is also good with half mayonnaise/half sour cream. The longer this sits the better it gets. Read More

This was just ok for us. Being one of the first reviewers I tried to follow the recipe to a "T" but had to make some adjustments to make it work. The amount of dressing wasn't enough so I need to make about 1/2 more. I also prefer this w/much less sugar and more vinegar. It's a very basic broccoli salad and easy to adjust to your personal tastes but as written it's a bit dry and sweet for me. THANKS 1940's girl! Read More

I'VE TRIED VARIOUS VERSIONS AND ONE DELETED THE SUGAR AND ADDED RAISINS AND SHREDDED CARROTS. TASTED YUMMY. THIS ONE IS GREAT WITH LESS SUGAR. I LIKE IT COLD BEFORE SERVING. WARM NOT SO GREAT. Read More

I cut back on the raisins and add small red grapes cut in half and also a handful of chopped salted peanuts. I also use sour cream instead of mayo and I always up the bacon because who doesn't like bacon? Read More
