I had this recipe years ago and lost it. So I came to this sight to see if I could find it. I am very happy to have it again as I really liked it and would take it to holiday luncheons and just substitute dried cranberries for raisens. Everyone always liked it. I was craving it again. Read More

This recipe was a smash at my Moms birthday picnic! She just raves about it. Very refreshing and lite on a hot day. Like that it didnt have bacon. Made a few changes: Used Dried cranberries instead of raisens and used orange juice (fresh sqeezed) instead of lemon juice. Also only used 1 tbs of sugar since orange juice is sweeter than lemon.

Very big hit at a number of different parties. I love this salad so much and often want leftovers but there aren't any! It is lighter than the traditional version which is all mayonnaise (no yogurt) and also has bacon. This is much nicer. I usually add more broccoli than this recipe calls for as the amount of dressing is quite generous. Read More

Awesome salad! I didn't have any yogurt on hand so I used all mayo. And the lemon juice struck me as odd for some reason so I subbed apple cider vinegar instead (only 1/2T). I also used only a 1/2T of sugar and that along with the apple cider vinegar made it sweet enough. The feta in this recipe is wonderful. And like others I used dried cranberries instead of raisins. I knew I wouldn't be able to eat all of this salad by myself so I kept the broccoli separate from the "dressing." Outstanding recipe! Next time I'll throw in some crumbled turkey bacon! Thanks!

I took this to a church picnic & didn't bring any leftovers home so that's always a good sign.:) The changes I made were minimal: used low fat greek yogurt and used a bit more lemon juice than called for. Next time I might cut back on the onions a little but that is just a personal preferance. Thanks for sharing such an easy & tasty recipe! Read More
