  1. I had such high hopes - it was the dressing that was such a let-down. The mayo-sugar-vinegar combination makes something really special taste like any plain old broccoli salad. I subbed craisins for raisins and left out the bacon. I should have gone with my gut and not doused the whole thing in mayo. A - Read more ...
  2. Wow - excellent salad! I omitted the bacon and used onions (not green onions) and added sliced apples. Thank you for this excellent recipe.
  3. This is the best salad I have had in a long time- I made it twice in one weekend! The flavors are diverse and yet they really work well together. I used a pound of bacon green and red onions (a little more than half of a cup) and a mixture of raisins and cherry - Read more ...
  4. This was an awesome salad! But be careful not to mix the dressing with the rest of the ingredients more than a few hours before serving as the broccoli will wilt and shrink a bit leaving it a little watery in the bottom of the serving dish.
  5. Very yummy! I used red onion instead of green onion craisins instead of raisins and I sugar coated the almonds and added them right before serving. (Heat them in a pan over med-low to med heat with 1-2 Tbsp white sugar until the sugar melts. Cool and break apart.) I'll definitely make this one again.
  6. AWESOME!! My guest took the copy I made to make the dish! Really a winner easy to make and delicious. Will make for every cookout! Thank you!
  7. Good salad. I don't care for the taste of raw broccoli so next time I make this I will steam the broccoli just slightly. Otherwise good flavor combination.
  8. I love this recipe. It's quick easy and delicious. I've made it for my child's teachers family reunions and other celebrations. It has been a hit with all(especially the teachers). It is a very unusual combination of flavors but when infused it's like eating fireworks. All my tastebuds are going wild with the freshness and - Read more ...
  9. I made this salad the day my fiance was returning from a trip. After I finished making it I had to leave my home for a few hours only to return and find my fiance finishing the entire 8 serving salad. He has been after me ever since to make it. Maybe this time he - Read more ...
