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

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.

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 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!

I just made it, soo good! I did use the suggestion to process the dressing that way you can't tell there is raisins in it. Lol can't wait for the family to try it
