I think next time I will either steam the broccoli or leave it out all together. I liked the apple, walnut and raisins with the yogurt but didn't care for the raw broccoli with it even tho I do like to dip raw broccoli, just didn't like it in this. I may try some arugula or another leafy green. It does need to sit for a few hours b4 serving. All in all a good recipe that I will be playing with a little. Thanks for posting.

Loved this! Added some cauliflower and celery, and left out the walnuts. Refrigerated it a few hours and the flavors blended really well. Loved the apple and broccoli together. I also loved the crunchy celery in it! Will definitely make again!

Very nice salad. I added some bacon bits for a little added flavor. This tastes better after it sits for a little bit. Very easy to make and will be having this quite often! Thanks!

Ths salad was really delicious. The only change I made was I blanched the broccoli which made it a vibrant green. I love salads with raisins in them!

Wow. I LOVE this recipe! I have made this a few times now and each time I change it a bit depending on what is available at the store. My favourite change is to omit the walnuts and raisins and throw in a bag of "Mandarin Magic" or "Very Cherry" from Del Monte. (They are bags of mixed nuts with dried fruit.) I keep coming back to the original recipe as my starting point though. Thank you for such a great, easy recipe.

This is a wonderful salad. The flavors and textures were great! The colors are amazing and tempting, and the crunch factor was important for me. I did find that it tasted even better after letting it set for half an hour. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. Definately a keeper!

I really enjoyed this salad. My husband was not a big fan, which is why I gave it a four stars instead of five....I will definitely make again though for me!

I took this to a potluck and half the people there asked me for the recipe! I didn't like it right after making it, but after the flavors mingled for a couple of hours it was great. The next day the broccoli was still crunchy and the apples weren't brown. I doubled the recipe, using 2 granny smith and 2 macintosh apples. I did use extra yogurt -- 2 6 oz containers. Thanks for a healthy delicious recipe!

What a great healthy salad! We ended up using about a full cup of fat free vanilla yogurt. The vanilla yogurt/onion combination was interesting - might try plain yogurt next time for comparison. The texture is wonderful. Thanks for the recipe! UPDATE: We've made this a few times now, and enjoy it the most with double the vanilla yogurt and the onions omitted. Thanks again!

A great little salad, Charlotte. I used one MacIntosh and one Granny Smith apple. Very colorful and fresh tasting. I liked the crunchy texture. I had to sprinkle a little salt on it, though. With my addiction to salt, there was no way around it. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
