Love this salad! I was searching for an out-of-the-ordinary dish when visiting my parents (since they don't often experiment with new recipes) & came across this one. Very pleased with the finished product! Ingredients might sound a little strange together, but they totally work!

Haven't made yet, but sounds yummy. Thinking would be very good with red wine vinegar, also. Might even try in a pita pocket to make it a meal!

Love this salad. I make it for lunch with a small sandwich. I also use light mayo. Next time I make it I will try Splenda. So easy to make!

What a refreshing twist on a broccoli salad. My old standby broccoli included bacon bits, raisins and sunflower seeds, all of which are tasty but add a lot of fat and calories to the salad. I substituted light mayonnaise and Splenda and we couldn't tell the difference. I couldn't add this recipe to my ToH on-line recipe box fast enough!

This is a great recipe, I added a little leftover cooked chicken breast to my salad. I will be making this salad alot this Summer. Excellent!

I made this for a high school youth group get-together and they polished it off. It is simple, quick, and delicious! I WILL make it again!

LOVE this recipe. Even my husband, who doesn't like mayo, enjoys this yummy summer salad.

This was very good and easy. My son suggested I take this to the next family event, so I know it was a hit. I wasn't sure if it should be chilled. I mixed the broccoli, cheese & dressing and chiiled that. Right before serving I added the strawberries & almonds. That worked very well.
