  • Cook's Note:
  • The recipe calls for raw broccoli, but I like to microwave about 2 minutes in a small bit of water to steam, then chill. I also use light mayo or salad dressing and Splenda®. You can omit the chicken and it makes a delicious broccoli salad.

This salad is exceptional! I adore the bacon/chicken combo it is super in this salad. Added diced yellow peppers that went well with the green onions. Love the crunch of the walnuts. Simply added S&P to the dressing before whisking it up. The submitters note states you can use raw or a quick steamed in the microwave broccoli, I used raw. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

The chicken & broccoli mixture was good. I used chicken cooked with lemon & herbs. Since we have nut allergies, I omitted the nuts and added craisins and half a bell pepper diced and half a cucumber diced.

This was the perfect warm weather meal! I followed the directions exactly with the exception of reducing the sugar in half

Fantastic salad! I don't use sugar, so subbed honey instead. Fried up a whole pkg of uncured bacon and added to the salad instead of sprinkling on top as a garnish. The dressing is perfect! Will make this salad A LOT!! There is a lot, but leftovers will be perfect for lunches.

Great summer salad. I added half a red apple, chopped small, and that extra sweetness added a lot. I put the salad on top of lettuce when I served it.

I thought this salad was very good, with a nice combination of flavors that went very well together. I even tried some without bacon (GASP!) and found it to be equally as good as the portions that included bacon. Thanks for sharing this recipe, JeriM in Austin, TX!

Delicious, never had this before and I've always hated Waldorf salad so I was leery. Excellent, thanks for the recipe!
