I got introduced to a salad similar to this one by a friend after Thanksgiving. I was intrigued and found this recipe. I love the mix of flavors and textures. I used fresh cranberries(ground up), so I added raisins to give more sweetness, to offset the tartness of the cranberries. I used Velveeta crumbles for part of the cheese, and used artificial bacon bits. I did add just a touch more mayo. Thanks Bergy

Yummy, Yummy. Very good salad, I have made other broccoli salads but will put this also with my keepers. The cranberries and two different cheeses added a different little twist. Thanks for sharing.

While I always leave out the bacon (I usually sub minced jicama), I love this recipe. I whisk the dressing well and season to taste before adding to the rest of the ingredients, because it varies from batch to batch if I want more salt and/or pepper. I usually add a few T's of minced sweet onion, which means I need to up the sugar a wee bit. I sometimes toast the nuts (either walnuts or pecans, whatever I have in the fridge). I'm taking this to a potluck tomorrow, and I bet everyone will love it. Thanks, Bergy.
