    In my 69 years of cooking, this is the best broccoli salad I have ever
    tasted.

    This is a great do-ahead dish - I used it many times for potluck
    getogethers. It always went. I didn't use the water chestnuts tho.

    It sounds wonderful but I think I'd use dried cranberries
    instead of raisins.

    I used cranberries instead of raisins and also added some thawed
    frozen peas.

    Simple cold cooked broccoli with an oil and vinegar dressing is not at
    all bad. It works well as an accompaniment to beef paprikash. I prefer
    the stems cut in small pieces to the florets.

    I love this salad but have never added cheese or curry powder.

    That's a good idea! My husband won't eat raisins, he'd go for the
    cranberries though.

    Wayyyyyy too much sugar. The salad is just as good with far less. I use
    3 Tbl. max. I've never seen it with cheese, curry, celery or water
    chestnuts. The recipe I use comes from Nathalie Dupree's cookbook -

    That's what I though...that sounds sweeter than the infamous Carla's
    Macaroni Salad!! <VBG!!>

    There's also an oriental broccoli salad made with a package and
    seasonings of those ramen noodles. It has a bit of sugar, salad oil,
    vinegar, and a bunch of chopped green onions. This prepared the day
    before consuming for the broken noodles to soften then topped right
    before eating with and/or sunflower seeds/slivered almonds.

    Sounds questionable but it's verrrrry tasty.

    If you use only the tops from two pounds of broccoli at most you'll
    have like ten ounces of tops.

    With all that fat and sugar why even bother with that puny bit of
    broccoli... you call that a salad, that's a lube job at a candy
    factory... you must weigh minimally 450 pounds.

    I've had something similar that marinated broccoli and cauliflower in the
    dressing overnight, then added some baby frozen peas that had been run under
    hot water til thawed. No raisins or cranberries. It was surprisingly good.

    I don't add the broken noodles until right before I serve it. We like
    the crunch.

    The first time I had broccoli salad, was at a picnic. I mentioned the
    salad and Serene steered me towards a recipe. I would like to try
    yours, but this is the recipe I used.

    1 lg. head broccoli, broken into small flowerettes
    1/2 cup onion, chopped
    8 to 10 slices bacon
    1 c. mayonnaise
    1/4 c. sugar
    2 to 3 tbsp. vinegar
    1/2 c. raisins
    1/2 c. nuts (optional)

    Cut bacon into bits and fry crisp. Mix together mayonnaise, sugar,
    vinegar, bacon and raisins. Pour over broccoli and onions. Mix well. Let
    stand at least 1 hour or more before serving.

    Have you ever fried rice noodles? It's very quick. Put them into hot
    oil and a few seconds later, they're all puffed up. Much better
    tasting than Ramen and prettier too.

    Yeah I usually don't diss recipes but this one made my gorge rise. I could
    adapt it easy enough though back to something edible. As it is now, it
    sounds a bit like a mayonnaise smeared sugar bomb with bits of greenery
    poking out.

    Sorry Wayne, just not my cuppa tea there.

    Heh... as a matter of fact, I did that just a couple nights ago! Part of our
    Mardi Gras dining was a salad with deep-fried rice noodles. Lin took
    pictures and posted them on Facebook because Sheldon can eat a bag of ****.
    The salad itself was butter lettuce leaves left whole and lightly dressed
    with a vanilla vinaigrette. Those leaves were put onto a salad plate and
    topped with pan-seared shrimp (simply seasoned with salt and pepper) and the
    tangle of deep-fried rice noodles. The idea was to wrap the shrimp and
    noodles in the lettuce and eat with your hands. Lots of fun, and the vanilla
    vinaigrette combined wonderfully with the other flavors.
