Delicious! I used low fat mayo, a little less sugar than the recipe called for and added shredded carrots. I left out the cheese to reduce the calories and didn't have any sunflower seeds and it was still amazing. But I bet the seeds would have been great in it. Next time, I might try replacing some of the mayo with non-fat yogurt to cut calories even more. This one is definitely a keeper!
I was looking for a recipe like this after spending $5.99/lb. at my local deli. And this recipe tastes even better than the store bought. It is also easy. I thought I would have to parboil the broccoli but no! Just wash the broccoli well and chop it. Five cups of broccoli is equal to the crowns of 3 -4 stalks. Also, I used no bacon and it is so good without it also. This will be a staple in my fridge. I could eat it every day!! Thanks for sharing.
Used Ocean Spray Cranraisins! Crowd pleaser!! I was served this salad at a Tea Room in Quitman, TX and it was absolutely delicious. Came home and researched the recipe. Took the dish to buffet luncheon and was devoured within minutes. What's so nice is you can prepare this recipe by cutting back on the fat/calories through the mayo, sugar, cheese and bacon.
Boy was this good. The conbination was great. I love dried fruit in broccoli salad and this was a hit. I wouldn't change a thing about this wonderful salad.
This is a great salad! I really liked the dried cranberries (instead of the usual raisins) and the sweet/tangy dressing. Left out the onions, otherwise made as directed and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2013 event, recommended by GibbyLou
Very much enjoyed! Thanks! Made for the Best of 2013 game. :)
Delicious! I love this type of salad in any variation, and this version was really good! I decreased the sugar a bit, but other than that made as directed. Thanks for sharing! Made for Best of 2013 Tag game.
I made this to serve with Christmas dinner and it was enjoyed by all. I think my family was happy to see something other than green beans. I used about 3 cups of broccoli and halved the remaining ingredients. I did not have sunflower seeds, but I bet they would be delicious. Thanks for posting!
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Made this for my family and it instantly became a favorite! Nice for summer day picnics!
