Made this for a BBQ, it was good, but needed adjustments.

This is the three star version of this salad because of the sugar. Too many carbs. Make it diabetic friendly by using the very best artificial sugar if you must have that sweet sour taste, add nuts, walnuts also add some sharper taste, use sharp or extra sharp white cheddar cheese to give it more punch, or add just a bit of minced or grated fresh ginger. I also like to just slightly blanch the broccoli before chopping it fine for the salad as older folks or those with dentures find chewing the raw version problematic.

If you like sweet salads, this is for you! I used broccoli slaw, which made the recipe very simple for a picnic.

There is a pre-made salad in the grocery store with broccoli and cauliflower that I love. Added cauliflower to this recipe and it was very close. Yay! Actually, I substituted plain yogurt for half of the mayo to lighten it up just a little. And actually forgot to add the cheese and it was still delicious!

This was very good. I doubled the broccoli, added an additional 1/2 cup of mayo, a 1/2 cup of pine nuts, and 1/2 cup raisins. No need to add more sugar since the raisins are sweet. This was delicious, thanks for posting.

I made this recipe as written and it was excellent. The other way I make it is with cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella, and raisins, also excellent. Never any left!

Pretty good. I made it the night before, and the next day it was too oniony for my taste (I'm pregnant, plus I don't love raw onion). But one day after that it was quite good (4 stars) since the onion had blended in more. One more note: I used one head of broccoli from Aldi's with half recipe. I should have used more broccoli. Maybe Aldi's broccoli heads are small though.
