I found this recipe in a regional magazine and we really enjoyed it. Even my broccoli-hating children loved it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine broccoli, cauliflower, cheese, onion, bacon bits, raisins, walnuts and apple in a large salad bowl.
  2. Combine the mayonnaise and sugar in a small bowl; let sit for 15 minutes for the sugar to dissolve.
  3. Add in the vinegar; stir well to combine.
  4. Pour over the salad ingredients and toss to mix well.
  5. Refrigerate for several hours before serving.

I can't believe I forgot to review this last summer when I made it. This was great for a 4th of July party. I substitued sliced almonds and craisins as I prefer them. I also used some granny smith apples along with gala apples. One more thing I did was substitute low fat/lo cal for the cheese & mayo.I did keep regular sugar, but might try splenda next time. Everyone wanted the recipe and was looking for leftovers the next day.

I always love a good broccoli salad. Adding the apples was a different touch (like a Waldorf) and I enjoyed their sweetness and juiciness.I made a change and added sunflower seeds instead of the walnuts. I used the "already cooked" bacon, too. Thanks Dreamgoddess, for posting. Roxygirl

Very good and it keeps well. I had leftovers 3 days after it was made and it was still very good. I used all broccoli, Muenster cheese and regular raisins. I will make this again!
