Blanch the broccoli florets (drop them into boiling water for 1 minute then drain or put into a salad spinner to dry) before adding the other ingredients and dressing. 100% improvement. Read More

Sadly found this to be bland. Blanched the broccoli which I recommend. The dressing was tasteless though. The next morning I tried to give it flavor. 1st tried a taste with cayenne added - NO. Then tried adding curry powder - better. I think I'll try adding curry powder (1 tbl) and a dash of cumin to the dressing next time. Loved the red onion raisen and seeds. Read More

This salad was great with a few modifications. First blanch the broccoli. Second double the dressing and use real mayonnaise (it's only a couple of tablespoons for Pete's sake!) and Third ADD BACON. Read More

I loved this! Such wonderful flavor and can be made in a snap! I always blanch broccoli as I don't like that real raw flavor and it brings out the green. I also added salt and pepper had low fat mayo and full fat yogurt. I only had a tangerine so used the juice from that and also a bit of the grated rind thrown in. It really brought out a beautiful flavor and the color of bits of orange. I didn't have sunflower seeds so threw in a few cashews for crunch. The textures are also wonderful in this salad and so healthy. Will definitely be a summer staple in my house. It was nice to find one that didn't take bacon as my husband doesn't eat pork. Read More

Really a good salad! And healthy too! I added about 2 T. real bacon bits for flavor and blanched the broccoli about 2 minutes to bring out the bright color. Didn't like it much when I first prepared it but after sitting overnight it's delicious! The flavors have really blended. I think it would be good with chopped walnuts instead of the sunflower seeds. That would even make it healthier. Will definitely make again! Read More

Due to personal taste I put halved grapes in instead of raisins and used a sauce from another recipe: 1/3C mayo 1/4C yogurt 3T sugar 1T red wine vinegar 1 fresh squeezed orange and fresh ground pepper also no red onions too stinky either some finely chopped Vidalias if in season or white or 1/4C white onions super fine chopped if I'm in the mood for more decadant sauce I double it for more creamy coverage yum I'm rating based on my modifications not just by the recipe as it is Read More

This recipe is so delicious. I just about doubled the raisins and sunflower seeds and added an extra TB of OJ because I love the sweet flavor of brocolli salad dressing. I also added 1 TB of honey. Wow... will be making this again! Great recipe. Read More
