"Not a fan of Miracle Whip, I substituted mayonnaise and loved the sauce. It might be better to heat the sauce or cool the broccoli a bit because the vegetable really soaked up the sauce quickly, cutting down the "tang" but the recipe is still a keeper for us. Husband loved it."

"Very Good. This added a nice flavor and was fast and easy. Next time I think I'll heat the sauce so you're not putting cold sauce on warm broccoli"
