Reviews forBroccoli Boo Salad
"I have made this delicious colorful broccoli salad several times. The orange, raisins and bacon add great flavor to the broccoli. The slightly sweet dressing is also very tasty!"
"I recall preparing this salad when it was featured in Taste of Home! I DID make adjustments: I used Ranch dressing instead of mayonnaise with the sugar and vinegar.I'd used LESS the amount of broccoli florets since there was only my Mom and me at home-I used 4 TO 8 cups, the regular amount of mandarin oranges, well-drained, 1/2 TO 1 cup chopped EITHER red OR yellow onion. Instead of bacon STRIPS, I used 1/2 cup bacon BITS OR use the Hormel cooked, crumbled bacon-1/2 cup and 1/2 cup of raisins.What I had done, since the Ranch dressing is already prepared, I just added the sugar and vinegar to it. Then I prepared the salad, poured the dressing over the salad, and tossed as I'd assembled it all at one time! I refrigerated the salad, covered, at least 3 hours. I found this salad really tasty, too! Thank you, Vicki Schlecter, for sharing your recipe!delowenstein"
"Miracle Whip already has sugar in it, so why not replace Miracle Whip with Mayonnaise? After the second time making this, this was much better."
"better after sitting awhile--fantastic"
"I have made this recipe too many times to count! It always goes quickly at church picnics and family gatherings. I usually substitue mayonnaise instead of Miracle Whip because we don't like the taste. The recipe still works great. Make sure you allow enough time for the flavors to mix. I have made this the night before or earlier in the day and it still works great. I sometimes use the pre-baked bacon, just rip it up and toss it in. It speeds up an already quick recipe even more!"
"This is so good that my husband eats it and he doesn't like broccoli."
"This is an amazing recipe. I use it every year."
