My sis-in-law always makes this salad for family parties, and I keep forgetting to ask her for the recipe...but then, I found THIS recipe and tried it - SUCCESS!!! It's exactly the same! I only had Miracle Whip on hand (instead of Mayonnaise), which made it a bit sweeter, but other than that, it was amazing! And my 2-yr-old boy LOVED it - I didn't think he'd take too well to the raw broccoli, but the sweetness of the dressing and the raisins toned down the "broccoli" taste. I will make this salad over and over again! TY!
This broccoli salad has a great taste. The dressing is perfect. I omitted the salt. With the toasted almonds it was yummy. Thanks Doug :) Made for Market tag game
Made just as directed (for a change *blush*) and it was great. Can't think of anything that I'd change. Great veggie side with the grilled burgers tonight. You can't go wrong with this salad.
I've made this salad with pecans, sunflower seeds, and now toasted almonds. Always delicious! I used no fat mayo and real bacon instead of bacon bits....just don't like those. Wonderful salad! Thanks for sharing.
Amazing, I didn't know we can eat broccoli raw. But it's actually good! It's crunchy, love the almonds in it as it gives it a nutty flavor and the salad's sweet and delicious. Didn't have celery so didn't add it and opted out on the bacon bits. So easy and yet so good! Thanks!
Yummmmmmm!! Made just as directed and we loved this delightful salad. I have always wanted to try raw broccoli and this was sure a hit. Made for holiday tag. Another keeper, weekend.
Delicious! I used cider vinegar for the dressing, next time I will reduce the sugar slightly, didn't have any almonds so I added in toasted pecans, will make again, this was a wonderful salad, thanks for sharing weekendC!
This is a great broccoli salad! I left out the onions, otherwise made as specified. The almonds and celery in the salad and the pepper in the dressing made this a little different than others I've tried and I really enjoyed these additions. This is terrific - thanks for sharing the recipe!
I've made this salad several times and it never fails to impress. I'm always asked for the recipe. I have to admit that I don't like the imitation bacon bits so I always cook the real thing...makes it taste that much better. And if it sits overnight.....it is even better! Thanks for a great recipe and one that I will continue to make over and over!
I love broccoli salad and this was just a little different from the others I have tried. I enjoyed the taste of toasted almond and the celery added more crunch! Thanks!
