    This is wonderful! I made it today and used Splenda in place of sugar since my dh is diabetic. We loved it. Would be a great dish for a salad or potluck dinner. It's also going on my list of holiday meals side dishes. Soak the raisins in a cup of hot water for about 5 minutes, then drain. - 1/18/09

    So yummy! I love a great broccoli salad! I add some diced red onion and will sometimes use sunflower seeds instead of the almonds! YUM-O! - 1/13/08

    I have made something similar to this, try unsalted sunflower seeds if you don't like almonds, and seedless purple grapes instead of raisins for a twist. Add some shredded cheddar cheese. Also substitute Balsamic Vinegar 1-1/2 to 2 tbsp instead of cider. EXCELLENT!!! - 6/28/07

    I also added the dressing right away, next time I'll cut the vinegar in half. It was a little over the top for me but definately a great side dish! - 4/22/08

    Made this for a barbeque we had yesterday. Everyone loved it. Instead of waiting to add the dressing, I mixed everything together and let it marinate in the fridge for a few hours. REALLY good. Veggies and everything were still crisp. Thanks for the recipe, I can't wait for the leftovers! - 4/21/08

  • This one of my favorite salads ... this recipe is a lot light Nature's Table recipe. It's good (and healthier) with almonds, but I used chopped pecans sometimes. - 6/1/11

  • This looks like a reduced fat version of Joan's Broccoli Madness from Soupplantation/Sweet Tomato. I use light mayonnaise instead of fat free but use less of it on the salad. The the other half of the dressing keeps for up to a week in the fridge. I also use a raisin medley from Fresh & Easy. YUM! - 3/3/11

  • Brought it for a pot luck and the bowl was empty when I brought it home! Didn't use all the dressing, considered using Splenda instead of sugar, but the calorie count didn't really warrent it, so I left it as is. Used salad topping sliced almonds right out of the bag. Great recipe. - 2/9/11
