This is a wonderful salad! I was so excited to find the recipe. The funny thing is, I too ate it for the first time at a pot luck and said, "I have to have that recipe!" But I couldn't find the person who made it (there were about 200 people there) so I came here looking for it. I omitted the raisins since noone here really cares for them, but other than that I followed the recipe as written. Served it as a side with BBQ Ribs and Corn on the Cob. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

Must be a potluck favorite because I also ate it at one and came looking for it. I omitted the raisins since I"m not a raisin fan but the rest is wonderful! Great way to get the kids to eat their broccoli too!

This was pretty good. I left out the sunflower seeds due to some family members not being able to eat nuts and seeds, but otherwise followed the recipe. I don't think I would use the mushrooms again just due to personal preference, but this is a quick and tasty little salad. Thanks for posting; it's a keeper! Gina :)
