I have made this delish broccoli salad many times using reduced fat Hellmans. Leave the broccoli florets unchopped, add at least a cup of craisins and sunflower seeds, adding the seeds right before serving. I also add cheddar cheese shreds. Always a hit!!

So delicious my 8-year twins wanted it for breakfast the next day! I also added cut red grapes which was very good. A really great recipe.

This has become a favorite salad of ours and is prepared frequently. To change it a little, since it's eaten so often, I like to add slivered almonds, or glazed walnuts, or sunflower seeds. Also, to add a little more veggie crunch, I add thinly sliced cabbage...and it's, oh, so good! I've only added bacon a few times, but we prefer it without. And for the dressing, I found that an inexpensive light mayo is good, but the red wine vinegar should be of good quality; makes a difference! : }

So delicious and a refreshingly healthy. I prepared this recipe for a party and got rave reviews from all in attendance. The only change I made to the recipe as written was I used cashews in place of the sunflower seeds. I love the flavor of the dressing in this recipe and I will definitely be making this again and again! Thank you for a wonderfully healthy salad recipe!

We loved this! And it's pretty healthy, too. I didn't measure the salad ingredients, but made dressing as written. Will be making this often. (I used frozen broccoli I cooked, drained & chilled) Thanks for posting!

This was very good. I had to keep people away from eating it before I could do a photo of it. Definitely a keeper. As is, no tweaks. I did this recipe as a part of the Western Region's Faceless Frenzy July 2012.

This was very good! Nice crunch and balanced flavors. Great picnic salad! I used reduced-sugar craisins (couldn't tell the difference) and olive oil-based mayo. Didn't use the entire amount of dressing...just enough to coat. It was just as good the next day. My husband loved it, I prefer it over the raisin/broccoli similar salad.
