This was different and a nice change. I found we preferred it the next day when the broccoli was a bit limper and the flavors had blended more. Next time I will try omitting the sugar. The sugar coating on the nuts dissolves & does add a lot of sweetness as do the raisins. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
Wonderful! The beer nuts added an extra sweetness that I loved! This salad was very popular when I took it to work for my fellow teachers to try. Thanks for sharing. **Made for Fall PAC 2009**
