3 Comments for "Broccoli Raisin Salad"

This is my favorite salad, I make it for every BBQ I go to during the summer and people are always asking me for the recipe! Often times I do it just as the recipe says but sometimes I mix it up and use dried cranberries or add cauliflower. 

I found this recipe to be very tasty and sweet enough even with a reduction in sugar as mentioned above. I reduced the sugar by almost half the amount. I like to add the bacon bits and sunflower seeds just before serving so this salad maintains a nice crunchiness; otherwise the bacon bits and seeds soften up somewhat.

This a very tasty salad! If you enjoy crunch in your salad this one is definately for you! I made this salad with my summer school students. It was a huge hit! I  did however, modify the sugar from 1/4 cup to 2 Tablespoons, The reason for doing so is that the raisins are sweet and the 1/4 of sugar made so sweet you really couldnt saver the flavors. Two tablespoons less made this recipe a sucess for my food tastings with the students!
