I just made this yesterday, but vegganized it a bit. I used veggannaise, seasoned rice vinegar (my favorite vinegar), organic golden raisens, smart bacon and about 3 packets of raw sugar (to taste). Came out awesome. I used it as a sandwich filler in a pita.

I made this recipe yesterday and it was exactly what I was looking for! I am a huge fan of a broccoli salad at a local salad bar-style restaurant and this salad tastes exactly like my favorite broccoli salad from that restaurant. It has a lot of different flavors and textures. No particular ingredient overpowers the rest of the salad. Absolutely delicious (and since it is served cold, it is great for summer!).
