Delicious! I used golden raisins and cut back the sugar to 1/4 cup and that was plenty sweet for us (I think I could've used even a bit less sugar and it would've been fine). I wasn't sure on using the raisins, but they tasted great in this salad. I made this earlier in the day and I suggest doing that so the flavors can blend a few hours in the fridge. I will be making this again for sure~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

As written, there is to much sugar for our taste. We cut back to 3 Tbsps. and it was perfect. Read More

I had a half-bunch of broccoli left, and this was a delicious recipe to use it on. For the dressing, I used Stevia® in place of the sugar, to cut the calories down, and my husband cannot tell the difference in taste. I liked that this recipe used red wine vinegar. We liked the tanginess that it added. I mixed the dressing up in the morning and stirred it several times throughout the day. I put the salad together about 45 minutes before dinner. We loved it. Served it with 'Slow Cooker Sausage with Sauce' from AR. Kind of an odd combination, but I needed to use the broccoli up. Thanks readycooker, for sharing your recipe! Read More

I made it a few times and love it. I added cauliflower cut about the same size as the broccoli (about half the amount of broccoli as the recipe calls for and the other half cauliflower). I also use craisins rather than raisins. Some times I add halfed seedles red grapes. Read More

Loved it. Was a hit. Blanched the broccoli al dente immediately chilled in an ice bath and refrigerated. Substituted roasted pine nuts for sunflower seeds; mixed the bacon liquid with the dressing; and added some feta. Can't say on the sugar because I always éyeball' measurements. Served it with BBQ Chicken and a dill sour cream bacon potato salad. Next time would sub corn on the cobb for the potato salad to avoid the similarity with bacon. Read More

Made this exactly as is except I used white wine vinegar instead of red and blanched the broccoli for 1 minute to make it more palatable. A fun new salad for cookouts! Read More
