Reviews for Broccoli Strawberry Salad
"i would like to substitute pl. yogurt for mayo."
"Love this salad! I was searching for an out-of-the-ordinary dish when visiting my parents (since they don't often experiment with new recipes) & came across this one. Very pleased with the finished product! Ingredients might sound a little strange together, but they totally work!"
"Haven't made yet, but sounds yummy. Thinking would be very good with red wine vinegar, also. Might even try in a pita pocket to make it a meal!"
"Love this salad. I make it for lunch with a small sandwich. I also use light mayo. Next time I make it I will try Splenda. So easy to make!"
"What a refreshing twist on a broccoli salad. My old standby broccoli included bacon bits, raisins and sunflower seeds, all of which are tasty but add a lot of fat and calories to the salad. I substituted light mayonnaise and Splenda and we couldn't tell the difference. I couldn't add this recipe to my ToH on-line recipe box fast enough!"
"I made this for a high school youth group get-together and they polished it off. It is simple, quick, and delicious! I WILL make it again!"
"LOVE this recipe. Even my husband, who doesn't like mayo, enjoys this yummy summer salad."
"This was very good and easy. My son suggested I take this to the next family event, so I know it was a hit. I wasn't sure if it should be chilled. I mixed the broccoli, cheese & dressing and chiiled that. Right before serving I added the strawberries & almonds. That worked very well."
"I love this recipe. It is so easy and so good. I have made this recipe a number of times and will make it again."
