I've been making variations of this salad for years, and I was taught by an Italian cook who makes it that they key is to cut the broccoli into very small pieces. It is much nicer than eating a huge hunk of raw broccoli, especially for people who don't usually like raw broccoli. The tiny pieces are much more palatable and it just makes for a much nicer salad. Even though I do like raw broccoli, the small pieces are sooooooo much better. Just cut the broccoli into florets, then chop them with your chef's knife until you get pieces about the size of a garbanzo bean.

This was awesome!! I didn't have any mayonnaise so I used light Miracle Whip. I also cut back on the sugar a little bit. DH loved it and it will be one of my favourites to bring to pot lucks during the summer. Thanks for sharing!

I made this salad for a potluck quilting luncheon, and had nothing left over to bring home to my husband. It was delicious. I used half cauliflower and half broccoli and I added 1 cup of sunflower seeds just before serving. I used white wine vinegar. Everyone in the group wants the recipe. Thanks vincy bramblett for promoting my image as a good cook!

Not sure if this is how it tastes but mine ended up tasting more like a sandwich spread which was really great! So I added croutons. Will be doing this often for sure! Used lady's choice LITE mayo since that's all I have in the fridge. Super easy & great tasting! Thumbs up!

I've been making this salad for years, but always with the addition of raisins. Coworkers would fight to take home the leftovers, but there often weren't any! It's really very, very good.

I make this all the time. I just brought some to our group last month.<br/>I like to add some sliced (1/4's) of grapes it adds a bit of sweetness to the dish.<br/>I also add walnuts if I know no one is allergic.<br/>I have also added some twist, plain or tri colored pasta, depending on how I need to use it.
