MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 28, 2014

It was a nice change from the usual side salad. I replaced the tomato with a cup of grape tomatoes and the fat free ranch dressing with light ranch dressing.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 7, 2010

This is a nice change of pace from the usual sweet broccoli salad recipe. I use light ranch dressing instead of fat free.
