This salad is great. It was my first time trying pumpkin seeds in a broccoli salad. I don't like pumpkin seeds usually but in this it's great. I used light mayo. And I used broco-flower. Thanks Pink :) Made for Holiday tag

Adored this version of broccoli salad! I followed this exactly and loved it! I used some smoked bacon, and it gave a lovely smoky taste. Great combination of pumpkin seeds and raisins too! Will make again, and often!

I'm with Sharon, in that we do love our broccoli, & this is a great new way (for me) to prepare it! I did cut it down to 1/3 the original size, but still used the original amount of raisins & pumpkin seeds, absolutely loving that combo! And for the bacon I used 2 tablespoons of bacon bits! A wonderful tasting salad that I'll have on my table again before long! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday tag]
