Reviews for Broccoli Raisin Salad
"Very tasty , the dressing had just the right amount of sweetness. I didn't have golden raisins so I used regular raisins and it tasted fine!"
"Excellent! I didn't have the raisins, so used Craisins instead. Just for some crunch I added some cashews, but the recipe is wonderful as is! No leftovers, so will double it the next time I make this. Will be a great salad this summer!"
"I, too, substituted mayo for Miracle Whip and added sunflower seeds. It was a hit at the BBQ! Tasted just like the broccoli salad at a high end Deli near us!"
"This is a great salad for Fathers Day BBQ!"
"I tried this at a pot luck dinner delicious"
"So good! I also added some sunflower seed kernels for crunch. And bacon bits work fine if you don't feel like frying bacon."
"Great, I used green onions instead of red. Yum!!"
"Love this salad! So easy and DELICIOUS. I always use apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar, makes it more fruity. And don't use red onion, I add sunflower seeds instead. Always let it sit in the fridge for 12 hours or so before serving, it's much better when rested! (As we all are!)"
"My family loves this. Even my picky dad who normally doesn't eat anything green! Sometimes I throw in some sunflower seeds. It's fantastic!"
"I used mayo instead of Miracle Whip and red grapes instead of raisins. My family loved it!"
"Tasty and healthy!"
"Wow! I took this to a BBQ and everyone raved about it. Thanks!"
"Followed to the T...We like a lot of crunch so I melted 1/2 stick butter in fry pan and toasted the sesame seeds and a package of crushed ramen noodles without season packet ...store in plastic container until ready to serve then stir into salad...this is the first thing to disappear at our family cookouts !!"
"I wish I could give this more than 5 stars! This has simply the perfect combination of ingredients. I am know for tweaking every recipe I come across, but for this one I won't change a thing. My husband just loves it and told me to make it again as often as I like. It's a great refreshing salad that is oh so simple to make! Love it!"
"I made this for my husbands birthday party and it was a big hit. I added sunflower seeds and a bit more bacon. I am making it again for a family reunion. This is now one of my favorite recipes...so yummy."

"This recipe was perfect. Just the right amount of everything. Will definately be making this again soon."
