Reviews for Crunchy Floret Salad
"This was good and easy to make. I did add 1/4 teaspoon of pepper to the mixture too but followed the rest of the recipe as written. Will all enjoyed this but hubby said it needed less bacon and more "sauce". I thought it had a good flavor."
"Good stuff! Started making this years ago when I found it in the TOH magazine.....been online for the last few years and found it again! Yummy!"
"This was pretty good. I thought it tasted better the next day."
"I have made this salad for several years, take it to pot lucks and my bowl comes home washed and ready to put away.I use about equal amounts of broccoli and cauliflower and about half a medium sized purple onion sliced in thin rings. The bacon is a MUST! mmmm I use Lite Miracle whip and either Splenda or Stevia, measured the same as sugar. I don't think the bacon in one serving of this salad does great damage to my cholesterol levels, but the taste it adds is wonderful, especially if you make it the day or night before."
"I have been making this for years, but the only difference is that my recipe called for cubed sharp chedder cheese which gives a great contrast to the sweetness. Family and friends all agree that the cubed sharp chedder gives it a great pop of flavor"
"I have made this recipe for many years. Always a big hit flavor can't be beat. I get asked to bring this often. I just sent the recipe after serving at a pot luck today. Can be made in minutes. My family loves it too! :)"
"It was easy to make and very tasty. I followed the tip and made it ahead and let the vegetables marinate in the dressing overnight."
"I have made this recipe several times over the years since it first appeared in Taste of Home. I had lost my copy, so I needed to visit the website to find it. I don't change anything in the recipe and it's fantastic"
"This recipe is so good! The only thing I did different is that I added some chopped purple onion.Don't cut corners or try to lighten up the most important ingredient of all for flavor (bacon)!Fry up "real bacon" while you are cutting every thing up.The taste will be worth it, I promise!I believe you will be asked for the recipe on this one.SheilaWestern Kentucky"
"I love this recipe. I like to lighten it up with Light Miracle Whip (1/2 cup only), bacos instead of bacon and light cheese. I add the bacos and cheese right before serving to prevent sogginess."
