    I make a version very similar to this, and it's always delish!! I use apple cider vinigar instead of white, instead of sugar I use honey, and for the creaminess I substitute half the mayo for greek yogurt. It's always popular at picnics!! - 6/10/11

    I used low fat Hellman's and substituted Craisins for raisins and sunflower seeds for almonds, and it was delicious. I think I will try red onions next time and maybe almonds. Definitely a recipe I will use again and again. - 10/23/12

    I reduced the sugar to 2T and used apple cider vinegar for more tang. Instead of raisins, I had some craisins. I also blanched the broccoli and mixed it all together while warm. Set it in the fridge to cool. Awesome addition to our grilled chicken dinner. - 4/26/12

    We weren't keen on the dressing. Just sugar and vinegar doesn't go with such great ingredients. I'll try the suggestion to use honey and cider vinegar with yogurt for creaminess - 3/9/17

    I've made this salad for years. I use broccoli "slaw" - shredded and in a bag in the produce section. The slaw also uses the tender stems from the broccoli. Makes a really fast salad. - 7/11/13

    I will try this again. I found it too sweet--will use less sugar. I also used low-fat dressing instead of fat-free so I will try fat-free next time for fewer calories and fat grams. Overall, a tasty way to enjoy broccoli! - 7/24/12

    Loved this salad. Used turkey bacon, substituted 1/3 C of mayo w/plain greek yogurt, 1/3C mayo w/wasabi mayo (Trader Joe's) and cut the sugar in half. Also added cherry tomatoes and sliced cucumbers. My husband finished it off! - 7/9/11

    Not exactly what I was looking for but it was very good. I had family in town and everyone tried it, and liked it! Even the one that typically wouldn't eat broccoli. I used golden raisins and threw in some craisins also. I used a bit more broccoli also. - 7/11/10

    My mom and I both loved this recipe. We added cauliflower the 2nd time, but I prefer just the broccoli. I also left out the scallions, but other than that I wouldn't change a thing. Very tasty. - 3/26/09

    This is my first broccoli salad that I have ever made. My husband likes it so I thought I would give it a try since it is low cal. I used splenda instead of the sugar. It is wonderful. I will be making it many more times. Thank you for sharing. - 12/30/08

    I thought this was way too creamy and too sweet. I think I'll try it again with about half the recommended dressing and with less than the recommended sugar, or just double the broccoli since I thought it needed more. Also I definitely prefer mayo over Miracle Whip. - 5/15/08

    Yum! This was is really good. I have been looking for a healthier, low-cal, brocolli salad. I used 1/2 splenda, and 1/2 sugar. I made it to take to a BBQ tomorrow, hope every one likes it. - 5/8/08
