OK, here's my "improvements". I used basalmic vinagar, and here's the best part...craisins! They make this really, really special. I got this recipe from a close friend which included the craisins. Also, per her suggestion, I "melted" the vinagar with 3Tblsp. sugar in the microwave before adding the mayo. Makes for a smoother dressing. I promise, those little cranberries make the difference. I now omit the raisins all together. Try it. It's great!

I didn't have green onions, so I used half of a red that I had to use or lose. For the dressing, I used half sour cream instead of the full mayo and cut back the vinegar to 1/4 c. as I wanted a thicker dressing. I also added garlic powder and basil. I also threw in a good sized handful of fresh parmesan cheese in with the dressing too, for extra zip. I took a taste. Really good. I bet it would be even better after sitting for a while. EDITED TO ADD: This was so good. Both my husband and I ate seconds of this. There were no leftovers! I'll make this again for sure!


My husband actually ate this and liked it! I followed another poster's advice and blanched the broccoli for 3 minutes followed by an ice bath to soften it and brighten its color. I also used basalmic vinegar and a little sugar, craisins and some shredded cheddar and red onion. I give it only 3 stars because I changed it so much, I feel it's a whole different recipe. But, hubby ate it (kids wouldn't touch it, no suprise there) so I will be making this again and again.
