"Oh, my goodness!!!! This is awesome!!!!!!!!!! Have to admit, I did cook the broccoli a little bit. ;)

If i eat raw broccoli, it has to be grated very small and I didn't want to fuss with it. This recipe is definitely a keeper. DELICIOUS!!!!!!"

"Made this for supper tonight and it was delicious! I had made a recipe similar to this before that used white vinegar but the red wine vinegar in this recipe really gave the dressing a great flavor! My husband's comment was make sure you don't lose this recipe!"

"I've been making this over and over for the last 7 years (since seeing it printed in Taste of Home) and everyone still asks me to make it for various gatherings. Tastes better and fresher than what is offered at the deli counter."

"I"ve made this recipe many times and my family always loves it! It's far better than similar salads that they sell in the deli. Buy the bagged broccoli florets to save time."

"This is a great recipe! It tastes alot like a deli salad I've had in the past, only in my opinion it has far more flavor. 5 Star Rating!"

"I never knew raw broccoli could taste so good. This salad has raves when I make it. I make it all the time now. But I believe that 2/3 cup sugar is to sweet, and especially when you double the recipe. I stick to about less than a cup when doubled. Its so awesome.
