I loved this! I left out the raisins and sunflower seeds, used green onions instead of red, balsamic mayo instead of regular and honey instead of sugar. I also added garlic powder (thanks, Kittencal!) and salt. Not really the same recipe after all that, I suppose, but wonderful all the same. Thank you!

Absolutely delicious. I added additional broccoli and an additional half of the dressing.

Made this for a family picnic a few days ago. Lots of rave reviews. I left the onion out - picky eater pleaser. Doubled the recipe and used the precooked already crumbled bacon. Next time I will make just a bit more of the dressing. Will make again and again I am sure.
