Bop's Broccoli Cauliflower Salad Reviews

  • I dont keep Miracle Whip in the house, I used Hellmans mayonnaise instead. This did need more mayonnaise than what was asked for. I cut the sugar way back to two tablespoons and I used white wine vinegar. Very simple side dish I could throw together before work. The longer this sits, the better it gets. Next time I will take the previous reviewers suggestion and add sunflower seeds.

  • This is a very basic broccoli salad recipe. I ended up using prosciutto in place of bacon because I was making something for another recipe and had extra. I also like to add some sunflower seeds for even more crunch. THANKS for the recipe

  • I have made this salad about twenty times. It is a family favorite, and a great go-to for summer salads. I frequently pack it in my lunches for work and it keeps for days. I have made adjustments from the first time but this review is for the original recipe. Excellent a little on the sweet side, but I have since reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup and it is still sweet enough for my sweet tooth. On other occasions, I have added craisins, and had to substitute green onions for the red since I didnt have any on-hand. The fact that I can make substitutions or add things just speaks to its versatility. Thank you for this recipe

  • A nice and tasty broccoli/cauliflower salad recipe. I only had enough vegetables to make a small batch, so I just changed the servings size and proceeded from there. Loved the dressing on this, but Im a Miracle Whip kinda gal. We enjoyed this salad with Mini Meatball Subs from AR.

  • No changes...will make it again.

  • I cant get enough of this salad I ran by the local Farmers Market and picked up the broccoli and cauliflower and the rest of the items I already had on hand. I honestly wasnt expecting this salad to be so good, but now I cant stop thinking about it. It was so easy to make and good gracious, the next day it tasted even better.

  • Tasty. Would cut down on the sugar by more than half. Used apple cider vinegar and added salad topper for nut and cranberry

  • Always a favorite at cookouts

  • Absolutely delicious I do not care for Cauliflower and this recipe makes it taste awesome Easy to make as well

  • Delicious broccoli cauliflower salad I used half mayo and half plain Greek yogurt trying to lighten it up a bit. Still delicious Perfect side to take to a summer cookout

  • Great base recipe. I adjusted the bacon to a full package. I also added sunflower seeds (3/4 cup). I diced an 8 oz block of sharp cheddar rather than shredded cheddar. I also increased the miracle whip to 1 cup. Very refreshing for a summer meal

  • Ive made this salad for years and I always get rave reviews I use real bacon pieces (not bits) rather than frying the bacon and it works wonderfully. I also add a handful or two of Craisins. Be sure to make it ahead of time because it becomes more flavorful as it sits in the fridge.

  • I really like this salad. The only thing Id do differently is add less sugar. It was too sweet for my taste.
