I make this, but I do a couple of things differently that makes it so much more tasty. I put the mayo and the raisins in a blender and it makes the dressing much better. After mixing, let it sit in the fridge over night. Add the sunflower seeds right before serving.

Halved the recipe...steamed the broccoli for about 2 minutes....used just sugar....EXCELLENT! Thank you!

I loved this recipe! The only thing I would do different next time is to blanch or steam the broccoli just a little bit (my kids didn't care for the raw broccoli taste). I also only used sugar. Great!

After beginning to make this salad, I realized all of my raisins had been eaten up by a "little mouse" (kids). So I used Craisins and it was delicious. Also, the Craisins added color. Everyone enjoyed it and hubby wants me to make it again!

I made a "mistake" and put in horseradish mayo instead of plain. OMG. It is FANTASTIC! It's got a zip like sushi with wasabi sauce. I also tried adding some raw corn kernels (freshly trimmed off the cob) which made it even better.

I love this recipe but change it up a little. Sometimes I use maple flavored bacon and craisins.instead of raisins and no matter what bacon I use, I always put about 3 tablespoons of the bacon grease in the salad along with the mayo and Splenda. The bacon grease gives a little extra flavor. Love this salad.

I used no raisins, only 1 tablespoon sugar, no other sweetener and scallions instead of onion. It got raves for Thanksgiving dinner and I have been asked to make it again for Christmas.

I've made this salad for quite a few years. I always use craisins and either walnuts or sliced almonds (never have any sunflower seeds on hand). We love it at our house!
