Very tasty salad. Sweet like a coleslaw. I followed the recipe to the letter, except that I think I put in a bit more broccoli, used red wine vinegar, and I heeded the warning of others and went easy on the onion. I found that just after I mixed it up, the onion was very strong. I made it up the evening before I was going to use it, and the next day, the onion flavor was barely noticeable. I ended up adding more onion. I think that either the vinegar or the mayo chemically "cooked" the onion and mellowed it out. With this salad, I would say that it's important that it sit for at least a few hours in the refrigerator before serving to let the onions settle down.

This is a great recipe and is almost identical to one I've been making for years. I only use 1/4 of the red onion, otherwise it is too strong for our taste; also, I use sunflower seeds and apple cider vinegar instead of almonds and white wine vinegar. For an absolutely awesome pasta salad, add (2) 9-oz. pkgs. of cheese-filled tortellini, cooked al dente, then well-drained and cooled. It makes a terrific picnic and potluck pasta salad and always gets rave reviews.

This is an awesome salad. I do tweek it a bit. I use golden raisins or red grapes instead of raisin. I also use 1/4 cup sour cream with 3/4 cup mayo, to lighten the dressing a bit. It is an awesome salad that always gets raves and devoured very time I serve it. My dutch friends have never had a dish like this and always request I bring this to their BBQ parties. This is a wonderful salad.
