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.

This is such a surprise at picnics. Everyone loves it. The crunch of the water chestnuts and the mixture of all the flavors is yummmmy!

I follow a mostly meatless diet, plus I have food allergies to cheese and eggs. This leaves me almost vegan. I am going to make this with vegan mayo, tofu sour cream (homemaid; store bought has hydrogenated oil) and either veggie canadian bacon or organic "bacon" bits. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out. I have some fresh broccoli in the fridge waiting to be transformed:)
