yum

Made this for a 4th of July bbq. It was a huge hit. Loved the crunch of the water chestnuts, and the sweetness of the cranberries. Used greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

easy to make, low calorie

a good side salad

some hints: 1. if you don't have cider vinegar, a splash of white wine works well. 2. i didn't get hung up on chopping - had some bigger chunks, smaller chunks. 3. serve on top a slab of beefsteak homegrown tomato.

make ahead, easy ingredients

Cannot believe all the rave reviews on this Salad

I made this salad yesterday for a Memorial Day picnic today. First let me say that chopping the broccoli took longer than 20 min. The salad was dry & had very little flavor. I redressed it today and while it's better, it's nothing to write home about. Save your time & look for another salad.

Healthy, low cal

Loved this recipe. It was easy to make ahead of time. The water chestnuts and dried cranberries made it very interesting to me. I'm the person who always brings a healthy salad when asked to bring something. I wanted something that was a little different than my usual. I have made it 3 times in the past month and have gotten compliments each time.
