Reviews for ABC Salad
"Very good, and simple to make. I used just 1/4 cup oil in the dressing, which was enough. I plan to make it again for our Christmas buffet."
"Simple and delicious. Just make sure to cut broccoli heads small."
"I recently made this for a picnic with friends. We all agreed it was a keeper. Light and fresh. easy to make. Traveled well in cooler. I used pecans instead of walnuts since that is what I had on hand."
"I have made this recipe time and again and always get great reviews and requests to make it again"
"This is the third time I'm making this salad. Since I found it, I make it once every year. It's a nice change from the other broccoli salads out there!"
"This is a well loved recipe among my family and friends! I sometimes use apple cider vinegar instead of lemon juice in the dressing and adjust the sugar to taste. It adds a little extra zip. It also works well with Splemda."
