"This is a tasty recipe, even without the bacon (I'm a vegetarian). I felt that the red wine vinegar was essential to the tanginess of the dressing; I recommend that you do not substitute white vinegar..." See more, although an apple cider vinegar might be a good substitute. Consider making this salad a day in advance and refrigerate for the flavors to develop (give it a good stir before serving, as the dressing will settle to the bottom. In place of the golden raisins, I used dried cranberries, which added color and a little zing. You could also add coarsely grated carrot for visual appeal and added vitamins. If you're going to travel with this recipe, just put the sunflower seeds in a ziplock baggie and stir it in when you serve the salad--the seeds will stay crunchy that way. You might also reserve some of the sunflower seeds and raisins/cranberries to sprinkle on the top of the salad for a pretty presentation. It went over very well at a family get-together and I was repeatedly asked for the recipe!"
"I have used this recipe several times. It's always requested! I did make some changes. 6 tbs's of red wine vinegar seemed like a lot. I reduced the 1/2 c. sugar to 1/3 c. and used Splenda instead of s..." See moreugar, used 4 tbs's of red wine vinegar and reduced mayo to 3/4 c light mayo. I also use the hormel or oscar meyer precooked crumbled bacon in package (found in bacon bits aisle & less calories then fresh bacon. I wouldnt recommend bacon bits. they have a stale, fake taste)Can easily be doubled or tripled for large get togethers"
"This was a good broccoli salad. However, I felt that the RED BROCCOLI SALAD on this site was much better. The red grapes, toasted slivered almonds, and purple onion make for an outstanding presentatio..." See moren, and the flavors pique the tastebuds. I make both salads for potlucks, but my most requested recipe is that of the Red Broccoli salad."
