"Even my non-broccoli eating clan loves (and asks) for this. Have made it for years and at the holidays you can sub the dried cranberries of cherrys."
"So good! I used half golden raisins and low cal sald dressing instead of mayo."
"This has been around for decades and I've never tried it before. Ah...to summon back lost time. A good salad - a bit salty from the sunflower seeds. Next time I'll try it with unsalted seeds."
"First had this at a cafe in a small town- love it- so easy and the flavors are all great together ! So glad it is posted !"
"Every time my sister comes to visit, I have to make this salad. She loves it and we do too. I've made it twice since she's left. Can't go wrong with this one."
"I had to serve the crumbled bacon on the side. But everything else was mixed together. Everyone that could eat bacon added it on top, then mixed in.I used golden raisins. I chilled about 2 hours, a keeper to take to a potluck or family dinner. More than a 5 star Krsi Sue."
"Just about to post an almost identical salad. Only variation is that the recipe I have uses only 1/2 cup raisins but adds 1 cup seedless green grapes and 1 cup seedless red grapes."
"Very good, I used low fat mayo."
"I have to double the recipie for any of my familys gatherings. It's a hit at any one of them. I have added cranberries and mandrin oranges instead of raisins with good sucess."
"This recipe is wonderful. I make it for every potluck and there is never any left. I toast my sunflower seeds before adding to the recipe..for some reason that make a big difference...a more "nutty" flavor. My sis made it and she only had a vidalia onion..not same at all..needs to be a purple one. Thanks for great recipe!"
