"I followed the recipe with the exception of using balsamic vinegar and bacon bits. I'm not a big fan of raw broccoli, but this recipe is really good and I'll be making it again for sure."

"I was very leery of the raw broccoli and almost decided to steam it a little first, but I'm glad I didn't. I made this recipe as indicated and we really liked it. Even the kids cleaned their plates without complaint."

"Absolutely delicious! I made half the recipe (but went ahead and used the full dressing amount) and everyone loved the flavor combination. Even our youngest family member who NEVER eats broccoli tried it and ate an entire serving. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you for sharing it, Jessica!"

"I love broccoli salad; however, I find that blanching the broccoli a bit helps it digest better ad helps lessen some of the other broccoli effects."

"My husband who "doesn't like broccoli" loves broccoli salad. This is a good way to serve good for you veggies. This one is different than the usual one w/mayonnaise, a nice change. Thank you."
