"This a variation of the traditional broccoli salad with craisins, bacon bits, sunflower seeds, red onion and poppy seed dressing. I came up with this in response to a healthy carry-in challenge where we were encouraged to bring something from a list of 10 ingredients. Cooking time is chill time."

"Did cut this recipe in half, but other than that, it was pretty much followed & we had a very satisfying salad! Loved the combo of flavors as made, but my other half read one of the reviews & felt the need to add some feta cheese! Definitely a make-again kind of recipe! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars recipe tag]"
"Love this combination of flavors especially the dried cranberries-a favorite in our house! And so easy to put together when you have lots of entertaining to do. I was concerned that the apple would turn brown but the dressing prevented that from happening. Had this today as part of Fourth of July cook out. It was gone before I had a chance to take a picture. Thanks LARavenscroft for sharing. Made for Gimme 5 tag."
"a basic salad but big on flavor, I also added in some cubed Greek feta cheese, thanks for sharing Lori we enjoyed this!"
"WOW. Loved it. Was really nice when only 1 hour old, but the left overs for lunch the next day were even better. So 12 - 24 hours marinating changes it completely. Don't be scared of trying raw broccoli - done this way it is superb. I used homegirl Poppy dressing #123766 and they really went well together. Can totally recommend this recipe."
"We loved this broccoli salad. I used recipe #123766 for the Poppy Seed Dressing and it was perfect for this salad. I left out the walnuts to cut some of the calories and really didn't miss them and only used 1/2 of an apple. Before it even had time to sit my daughter scooped some up to take home with her. We will make this one again for sure. Made for a bonus tag in Pot Luck Tag Game"
"This was a very tasty salad. I would like to know what poppy seed dressing that you used. The one I used was a little sweet for me, but I will try a different one next time. I was interesting that apples and broccoli tasted so good together and I will definitely try this again."
