"Tastes great! Easy to make. Love the blend of broccoli, apples and raisins. Left out the cheese, was afraid it would get soggy."

"I really liked this recipe although I think next time I make it I will cut back on the vinegar. I used marical whip instead of mayonnaise - I left the raisins out because I do not like them but other wise I loved the salad and so did my brother in law"
