This salad is great, very flexible recipe, however, it should read 5 cups broccoli florets, not 2!
I make this every time we have a family get-together and it is always devoured! We do add the diced red onions and golden raisins also.
Made for your Football Pool win since DH & I both favor broccoli salads, esp when we entertain. Not only do they allow for combining the salad & veggie courses of a meal, but they are easily & best made the dy prior to serving & have proven very popular w/our guests. New to us was the use of sunflower seeds & raisins. We esp liked the textural crunch the seeds provided, but will prob do w/o the raisins for the next effort as a DH pers pref thing. Thx for sharing this yummy recipe w/us & congrats on your Football Pool win. :-)
I selected this recipe especially for my hubby, as he is a huge broccoli fan (me - not so much)! He LOVED this salad, ate almost the whole bowl in one serving LOL. I did cut the sugar and the mayo by half, and that was plenty of "sauce" for him ~ he doesn't like overly-wet salads. He said "Give it a 10" so you know it was good. Thanks for posting Denise ~ this is a new family must-have recipe! Made for your Week #5 FOOTBALL POOL Win, October 2010!
Fantastic broccoli crunch salad, better than the very expensive one I buy at Whole Foods. I used low-fat sour cream and dried cranberries instead of the raisins. Fantastic!
