This was a big hit at our Easter potluck. I used Miracle Whip since I didn't have Mayo. It was pretty sweet, but everyone loved it. Next time I'll use Mayo!!

This is the best broccoli salad recipe on the site. I am not a detail oriented cook and I used less bacon than what it called for and no slivered almonds. More bacon would've been good, but I didn't miss the almonds. I used a bag of broccoli/carrot slaw as well as the florets and that gave it a nice texture. I used fat-free mayo as well. It was excellent. Thank you for this great recipe.

This was pretty good. It definitely needs at least 3 hours to sit so the broccoli soaks up some of the dressing. It is quite sweet so I would definitely reduce the sugar next time.

Really good. Made for a picnic. Used dried cranberries instead of raisins, and left out the almonds. Other than that just followed the recipe!

I just made this salad for our 4th of July celebration. I omitted the almonds and substituted craisins for the golden raisins. Very yummy. Thanks for posting!

Really good. I used 2 small bags of precooked bacon. Next time I will cut sugar a bit.

I made this for lunch and used two broccoli heads and one head of cauliflower. I didn't have any raisins or almonds, and it is still delicious. Thanks!

What great flavor! The first time I followed the recipe exactly. The second time, I reduced the sugar to about 1/3 cup and also added some seeded, halved grape tomatoes and 1/4c shredded cheddar cheese - it was excellent either way. Also tastes better if made the night before serving. Thanks for a keeper of a recipe!
