I used real bacon bits & sliced almonds and found this to be a lovely version of a favorite salad! Thank you for sharing the recipe. :-)

Reviewed for PAC Spring '08 -- extremely yummy! I did tweak this a bit, to lower the calorie content; I increased the broccoli-to-everything-else ratio, and used a combination of low-fat and nonfat mayo in the dressing (also increased the vinegar and decreased the sugar, just a bit). I used your suggestion and subbed toasted sunflower seeds for pine nuts. This had a wonderful combination of flavors, and I just loved the crunchiness of it all. Thanks so much for posting it!
