Broccoli Walnut Salad

I love broccoli walnut salad!  My whole family loves broccoli
walnut salad!  And the best part is....(drum roll) tastes better
when it is made 24 hours ahead.  What a time saver!
I love this recipe because it is so simple and good.

Broccoli Walnut Salad
Serves 2  (Just double the recipe for 4)

2 cups fresh broccoli, cut into small pieces
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons raisins
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons sugar

In a small bowl, mix broccoli, walnuts, and raisins.
Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, and sugar.  Mix
into salad.  Cover and refrigerate 1 hr. ( STOP!  Wait
until the next day!  It is too good then!)



  1. Sounds delicious! I will have to trade out walnuts for pecans(just a little bit allergic), but this sounds like the perfect summer salad.

  2. It is a great salad and I make it as well -- but I substitute cashews for he walnuts and use golden raisins. Any way you make it, it is good!

  3. I have never heard of this before, but I will try it now. Thanks for sharing.

  4. This sounds so good! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  5. I love this also, but use pecans and dried cranberries for the Christmas holidays and then also substitute Splenda for sugar.
    Add a few slices of crispy crumbled bacon just before serving for a different taste.
    Just made a healthy dish less healthy but sometimes it takes that to get the broccoli down.

  6. YUM!! We love broccoli salad also!! Gotta try this one out!

  7. I love it too. My recipes usually have a bit of rice vinegar instead of the lemon.

  8. I may try yours this weekend!

  9. I have never tried this - we have a brocolli salad that we like - it is somewhat similar - but different!
    Sounds marvelous - I didn't attend the home tour - but I will share later this week some of the places shown. Stayed available if my daughter needed extra hands - she was filling in at the cutest store in town!
    Hope you have a marvelous week,
