Mandarin Orange & Broccoli Salad
photo by LuckyMomof3
- Ready In:
- Toss all ingredients together.
- Pour mixed and chilled dressing over and toss again.
- I like to put the mandarin oranges on last, after the dressing, so they don't break up too much.
- I sort of fold them in gently when serving.

WOW! I found this salad while looking for the recipe for the standard broccoli salad I usually make, and decided to try it on a whim since I had the ingreadients. The addition of mandarin oranges makes it goooooood! It is really a nice different touch. I used pecans like another reviewer, since that is what I had. Thanks for posting this keeper recipe, Meg. I will use it again!
This is so good I've made it twice in the past week. Both times I used both regular crumbled bacon (6 slices) and pecans instead of walnuts (I'm in the South). Fantastic! But what really kicked it over the edge for me was using champagne vinegar the second time. This is so fresh and delicious, I'll be making it forever. :)
Great recipe! Simplicity lets the quality of the ingredients shine through. We use olive-oil mayonnaise, balsamic vinegar and freshly cooked bacon, then substitute slivered almonds for the walnuts and currants for the raisins. No mandarin oranges for us. Perfection, and even more so the next day! Thanks for sharing.
This was utterly fabulous. At this time of the summer, everyone is tired of the usual coleslaw, potato salad, and macaroni salads that accompany a cookout. I made this today with rave reviews. I also blanched the broccoli, as someone else mentioned. I left out the onions, as the girls aren't big onion fans, and I used dried cranberries instead of the raisins. I wish I had doubled the recipe because in the end, we were fighting over the last scoopful!! Most definitely, this will be made again and again! Probably will make it again within the week. Thanks so much for this recipe!!!
