This is a delightful, cool, and crisp salad with healthy fruits, vegetables, and nuts that is a great accompaniment to any entree. It's a real favorite with anyone who tries it. This is a fun recipe as you can get creative with it. I have even made it with out the sunflower seeds, and it was still delicious.

The yield for the dressing is high so be sure to mix everything else before slowly adding the dressing as you don't need much for one head of broccoli.

I liked this salad but it is a fairly standard recipe for this type of salad (which I expected...no problem.) I do wish AR would list broccoli in cups (and a lot of other ingredients especially fruits and vegetables). I buy big bags of broccoli florets at Sam's. Even if I did buy crowns they vary a lot in size and in the amount of florets provided. I don't fault this recipe just wish AR would standardize. I used two cups bite-sized broccoli florets thinking that 2:1 would be a good ratio between broccoli and grapes. I also cut the grapes in half.
