Summer Broccoli Salad

Tamara Bonneru


This salad is so delicious it's wonderful any time of year. I've added chopped apples to it a few times and it never misses, as well as slivered almonds.
There are a few of these salads here but I couldn't find any one identical to the other.
My husband, who won't eat anything green (so sad), loves it as does everyone else who tries it and well, I hope you do too!
I've been working on eating lighter and so I've started making it with only a quarter cup mayo and 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt and the flavor is only slightly different and I think it tastes better this way.

How to Make Summer Broccoli Salad


  1. The night before serving or several hours prior to, mix the first 3 ingredients with your choice of raisins, (I use red) and let rest in the refrigerator. This allows the flavors to merge giving you a much better salad. I've tried it without letting the flavors marry and found it very lacking.
  2. After you have let the mayo mixture sit for at least 4-6 hours, add the rest of the ingredients which you can prepare while the sauce is resting in the refrigerator.
  3. The original recipe called for 1 cup mayonnaise and 1/3 cup sugar.
