    Altered ingredient amounts. I have tried a few other broccoli-like salads here and this is the best one by far! I didn't use the grated onion in the dressing and I also didn't use all of the dressing on the veggies. It was way rich and about half of the dressing was quite enough. I used 2 cups of red grapes instead of red and green and I ran out of sugar so I used splenda instead and I couldn't even tell the difference. Make this recipe and everyone will be sure to love it! YUM!  -  29 Sep 2008


    I tried this recipe which was emailed to me. It was fantastic! I've shared it with several friends. I used light mayo and it was just fine. I also did a "quick steam" with the broccoli and peas. It was delicious. I will definately take this to any gatherings!  -  29 Sep 2008


    I halved this recipe and brought it to a friend's house for dinner for four. It all got eaten up! Everyone, including myself, loved it. I used light mayo to reduce the fat. I also mixed up the dressing and the salad ingredients ( in seperate bowls) the night before and that worked out fine. Thanks!  -  29 Sep 2008
