Cranberry Broccoli Salad Recipe

Since our home state is a top producer of cranberries, I've nicknamed this tasty recipe "Wisconsin Salad." It features sweetened dried cranberries, which our family produces from the fresh crop we harvest every fall. —Cheryl Urban, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

Directions

  • 1. In a large salad bowl, combine the broccoli, onion, cranberries and bacon. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, cream and sugar until smooth. Pour over broccoli mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 6 servings.

"Very easy and very good! Made it for Thanksgiving... nice change from the other more 'heavy' dishes. I used red onions and bacon bits."

"This was good, but a bit too sweet. Next time i might tweek it and use less sugar and maybe add some vinegar for tang."

"Very good, but just a tad sweet for me so I might cut back on the sugar. Would definitely make again though since it was tasty and easy!"

"Excellant. I make a very similar salad that is always a hit. Eliminate the bacon (though it pains me to say that, as I love bacon), and add a cup of strawberry slices. Can use cranberries or dried cherries, depending on cost and availability. Very tasty, and with all the green and red it's festive for a holiday buffet."

"This has been a family favorite for many years now! As other reviewers said, there seem to be an infinite number of ways of adapting the recipe. In the summer, I like to add diced turkey or chicken or ham, & sunflower seeds to it to make it a main-dish salad on hot days."

"A version of this recipe is in my regular potluck rotation. I also replace the half and half with a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to taste, and add 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese. YUMM! What could be tastier that\n broccoli, bacon and cheddar? This salad is best eaten the same day, because it is dressed, but we have eaten any leftovers the next day on hot baked potatoes. I lovethis recipe because it lends itself to so many flavor combos and substitutions...Shredded carrot, raisins, sunflower seeds, onions, cauliflower, what have you! It is also a nice way to use up broccoli stems (mu families favorite!). Enjoy playing with this recipe!"

"My husband's family insists I bring this to every holiday. I, however, use a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar instead of the half&half and add course ground pepper to the dressing. I, generally, just mix the sugar, mayo and vinegar to taste and then transport it separately to toss just before serving. I also chop the onion into a small dice."
