I followed the recipe exact only using REAL bacon bits because I don't ordinarily keep vegetarian bacon on hand and omitting the sugar because we don't care for sweet salads. This is one of the best broccoli salads we have had in a long time. I especially loved the combination of broccoli and cauliflower and there was just enough of everything (bacon cheese dressing) without being overwhelming. GREAT salad! Read More

This was so good. Did not have cauliflower so I used what I had in the house. Celery avocado cranraisins slivered almonds red pepper and of course the broccoli purple onion and the delicious dressing. I think you can add anything and it will be delicious. My guests loved it. Read More

Great for a picnic! I used a food processor to shred my cheese and chop my veggies for a super quick prep. Subbed simulated bacon bits to taste (lots!) and low fat sour cream for the yogurt. Delish! Read More

Delicious! I cut the sugar in half and I used a scant quarter teaspoon of salt. I used Morningstar Farms veggie bacon and there was plenty of salty flavor. Read More
