Love this, easy to make,

This was very good Its almost, like adish that Ihave made like it

This recipe is the"BOMB". I made for my daughter to take to work and everyone wants the recipe. They loved it. I'll be making it quite often.

I made this for a family get together and it was a hit! I did use red wine vinegar because that's all I had in the house and splenda because I'm diabetic, but it would be great as is too.

Everybody wants me to make this all the time. I use red wine vinegar I think its better.

This salad is great!!! I've fixed it several times and everyone wants the recipe. Makes a really nice summer salad. You could even add chicken to this for a little different twist. Haven't tried that yet, but think I will the next time I fix it.

This dish is delicious. I should of doubled the recipe the first time. Now I have to make more.

I absolutely cannot wait to try this! I have a family reunion in June and this is what I'm taking! The addition of the sunflower seeds and craisins sounds good too, I think I'll do it that way!

Awesome! I added sunflower kernels and a palmful of craisins. Also used shredded cheese.

Are we talking raw broccoli, or par-boiled, or what?

Broccoli in a salad is always raw. Remember to wash the head of fresh broccoli in salted water to remove any stray bugs or dirt and sand.


love his food and cookin it
