    My husband loves this salad. I substitute craisins for raisins and add some chopped apple. Mmmmm

    Delicious. Definitely a keeper. I made some adjustments in that I more than doubled the amount of broccoli, but kept everything else the same. I think the dressing is what really makes this salad. You can adjust the other ingredients, but stick to the basic dressing recipe for the sweet, salty and tangy taste you expect from this dish.
