This salad is a hit any time i make it....i add 1cup of peanuts or cashews and 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese....and i use red wine vinegar......always bring home an empty bowl. It is a crunchy, sweet and tangy salad!!


I make this salad, given to me by mom-in-law. The only diff is that instead of raisins, we use pecans...the sweet flaor of these nuts truly make a diff. Also, we add cheddar cheese for an extra kick!

Because I'm low on mayonnaise, I used half mayonnaise and half sour cream. The mayonnaise/sour cream I used are reduced fat. I threw in a half cup or so of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. I liked the combination of ingredients together which surprized me--it was a wonderful salty/sweet combination. Not something that I would make every day because of the calorie count but for those PMS cravings, this is just what I wanted while still eating semi-healthy. Hey, broccoli is healthy! ;)
