Maybe (???) this would be good with some other kind of dressing??? Catalina was overpowering ... threw this out!

This recipe went over GREAT! I took it to a dinner at church and a lot of people weren't sure about eating it because of the way it looks. But looks really do deceive with this dish! It tasted wonderful! I wish there was some way to make it look more presentable. I think a lot more people would be willing to try it if it looked a bit more appetizing. Overall, it tasted wonderful! I had lots of requests for the recipe!

I am not sure if I would call this the BEST, but it was pretty good and a definite change of pace from normal broccoli salad. I found that it tasted best if I could get a piece of fruit and veggie in my mouth at the same time, so next time I will make sure the veggies are in smaller pieces. I didn't have sunflower seeds, but added some walnuts for cruch.

This is a sweet and crunchy salad that was a nice change from lettuce based salads. I skipped the sunflower seeds and I still liked it.

My 8 year old granddaughter helped me chop vegetables and assemble this salad. As each new ingredient came to the counter, she announced, "Oh, my favorite!" She insisted on taking over half home to share with her family; her mother later told me that no one else got any because my granddaughter ate it all! (We really enjoyed our share, too!)

Very good, tastes like summer. I doubled the amount of mandarian oranges and added the sunflower seeds all throughout the recipe to increase the "crunch." Tastes great. Regarding the oranges, I also sliced each peice in two so there was more peices of fruit throughout!

GREAT!!!! I added some bacon bits to add a little more texture. The apples taste great with the dressing!!!
