This is so yummy.I substitute dried cranberries for the raisins.It is crunchy and delicious.
This is one of my most favorite recipes. But because the sunflower nuts are so small and tend to stick to the sides of the bowl, I usually substitute sliced almonds or pine nuts instead. The combination of flavors in this salad and dressing are delicious.
Excellent Salad!!!!!! Easy and a party pleaser. I took this to a family gathering, and everyone said that from now on this is the dish I always have to bring. I used regular mayonaise. Love the crunch and taste of the sunflowers with the boccoli and bacon. Flavors blended perfectly.
This was super yummy! I added halved grape tomatoes, and left out the bacon. What a treat! Thanks!
Made this for 4th of July. Excellent and not a bit left after the party. We don't have miracle whip in Sweden so I used mayonnaise and added a little extra sugar since miracle whip is sweeter than mayo. I used almonds instead of sunflower seeds and white wine vinegar as I couldn't find regular vinegar. Thanks!
If I could I would give this 10 stars! I left out the sunflower seeds and used red onion. Also used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 miracle whip and golden raisins. I have made this twice in the last two weeks.
All I can say is WOW! I had been looking for this recipe for ages. Even my Mom, who is very hard to please, loved it. I used lite mayo instead of miracle whip and I also blanched the broccoli just to give it a brighter colour and a more tender texture. I will make this over and over...thank you so much for posting this great recipe.
I don't like raw broccoli or raisins, but I love this salad! I had to change some things due to what I had on hand. I used Duke's light Mayo instead of Miracle Whip and sweet onion instead of red onion. I also left out the bacon and added some shredded cheese instead. It was delicious! Next time I may try craisins in it instead of raisins, like another reviewer did.
Great recipe... everyone loved it. In fairness, I sometimes combine recipes and I tweaked it according to antoher recipe by adding 1/2 t salt and 1 T worcestershire sauce. At first it tasted too salty but was great by the time we ate it. I would like to try it again without the additions... I'm sure it would be great as written. Thanks!
I've been making this salad for years, and it's delicious. The only thing I do differently is to plump my raisins first by soaking them in hot water for a few minutes, then cold water to cool, drain and then add them per directions. This is just a personal preference because I'm not a fan of dried fruit.
