This was so good that I can't wait to have it again. I shared it with my neighbours, everyone wanted the recipe. I loved the dressing, the blending of flavours was perfect. A nice variation for broccoli salad. I omitted the nuts and added extra orange peices.

I'm starting to think that everything tastes better with a cooked dressing (first potato salad, then fruit salad and now broccoli salad). This dressing is so much creamier than the usual one for broccoli salad. It tastes less mayonnaise-y, too. Great tip about drying the broccoli well. That may be why my previous salads have gone runny the next day. Thanks Kitten! Roxygirl

I loved this salad! The dressing was perfectly flavored and really complimented the other ingredients. I omitted the almonds because I forgot to buy them. My daughter suggested that I add cheese next time, so I'll probably throw in some cheddar or colby jack. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
