  1. I have never been able to eat uncooked broccoli, but your recipe looks REALLY good. May have to give it a shot again.

  2. My husband really likes the broccoli salad in mayo mix. This looks great as well.

  3. I love raw broccoli and my family would love this because of the bacon – lol. Thanks for the idea – as a vegetarian I’m always looking for new ways to serve vegetables.

  4. I’m a HUGE broccoli fan–raw or cooked. I like the ingredients in this recipe–esp the bacon 😉

  5. I need to find better ways to serve broccoli like this! I am not a big fan of broccoli by itself so I need to use this recipe to serve a healthy side for dinner! YUM!

  6. Hmm, this is an interesting combo. I would have never thought about making broccoli salad before.

  7. mmmm i LOVE broccoli salad. I have a similar recipe, with bacon and stuff too, but the onions are in the dressing.
