I've been making this salad for quite some time now. This last time I only used 6 slices center cut bacon replaced raisins & cashews with Craisins & walnuts. I also eliminated the water chestnuts. The salad turned out great.

My husband (won't eat cooked broccoli) ate this up! I left out the water chestnuts (didn't have in hand) and used chopped walnuts made twice the amount of dressing base (like more sauce) and it was great! I'm making it again this week.

Was looking for a simple light salad to bring to a small party. I followed the instructions exactly; only made half the amount as there was only 4 of us. Everyone loved it!!!!

I've been making a salad similar to this for years. We all love it. I have never used raw onions because we don't care for them. My recipe only calls for broccoli golden raisins and salted sunflower seeds. I use white wine vinegar. I may try adding bacon the next time I make mine as I have never tried that either. The mayo-vinegar combo is what makes the salad. I'm not rating it and changing it......just wanted you to know you can vary the ingredients and it is still great with this dressing.

I made this for Thanksgiving but with all the other dishes and activity I forgot to get it out of the refrigerator!! That was probably a good thing though because there may not have been enough left for the next day! We just loved this and I would rather eat only this for dinner and let everyone else eat the rest! I tend to not measure when I cook so I didn't follow amounts carefully except for the dressing and substituted mild regular onion for the red. It was so good!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

I thought this was very good as written - and I don't even like broccoli! It was a hit with the whole family. I chopped the broccoli into sections that were smaller so it would mix better with the other ingredients.

Have made a version of this for years using pecans instead of cashews and celery instead of water chestnuts. Absolutely delicious!

I made this exactly according to the recipe (except that I used low fat mayo) and it was a smash hit. Absolutely delicious!
