fresh broccoli, cut into bite size pieces

white wine vinegar
This is good. I have taken this recipe to many functions. Everyone loves it! For variety, I eliminate the raisins and sunflower seeds and use red seedless grapes, halved and toasted almond slivers. Yummy!I get lots of requests for the recipe even from my husbands fishing buddies!
I know I'm in the minority here, but I just thought this was so, so. It is quick and easy to prepare, and I followed a lot of reviewers advice to make a day ahead so the flavors meld. When I ate it though, there was nothing about this salad that made me want to make it again.
This has been one of my favorite salads for a couple of years. I'm not a raisin fan, but in this salad, with the blend of the onion, the bacon, and the sweet-sour dressing, the taste is wonderful. The only thing I do differently is use pine nuts. I prefer the flavor of pine nuts, and they are larger and don't seem to stick to the bowl as much as the sunflower seeds do. I have even used sliced almonds as well.
I have made this salad for years.....without the raisins and sesame seeds. It is always a hit! Another suggestion, if you are trying to cut out sugar, make it with "Splenda" sweetner---tastes the same without the extra carbs/sugar!!!!
YUM!!! I had been looking for a recipe like the Deli Broccoli salad I enjoy. THIS IS IT, YAY! My husband said he could have used lighter on the red onions, but I LOVED IT JUST THE WAY IT WAS. I can see how you can change this to your own taste. THIS IS A GREAT RECIPE to start with. LIKE IT as is and LIKE it if you change per your favorite taste! GREAT RECIPE, DO TRY!
Every time I make this I print out a few copies because everyone that tries it asks for the recipe. That way I can just hand it over. I am always asked to make this for potluck bbqs. I leave out the bacon for less fat and use red wine vinegar. Love it
I usually just buy this from a grocery store but thought I'd try your recipe for the holiday weekend. I adjusted some of the amounts a bit and it came out great. I used 5 cups of bite size broccoli, 3 Tbl sugar, only 1 TBL vinegar and only 1/2 c. sunflower seeds. I also tried the already cooked bacon and heated it up to get a bit more crisp,worked out good. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper!
My husband and I made this for our Christmas Eve banquet style dinner and it was a huge hit! Everyone loved it. Because we had so much food leftover, we ate it again 2 days later and it was even better, sitting for 2 days. Will definetly make it again.
