Cranberry Broccoli Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 24, 2013

"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."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 14, 2013

"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!"

MY REVIEW

"I double this recupe for church potlucks. I never have even a spoonful to bring home."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2012

"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."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2012

"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."
