Question brocolli raisin salad recipe?

Does anyone have a recipe for that salad that has brocolli, raisins (maybe nuts) with a sweetened mayo dressing? You see it a lot at pot luck dinners. Thanks!

Since I wanted to make this for Memorial Day, I found a regular recipe and adapted it. I thought others might want to try it too.

Broccoli and Raisin Salad

8 cups broccoli
10 slices extra lean turkey bacon, fried extra crisp
1/2 cup no salt sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup fat free salad dressing
2 tbsp. vinegar
2 tbsp. sugar (or splenda)
4 tsp. fat free milk
2 tbsp. minced green onions (about 5)

Place broccoli in a large bowl. Crumble bacon over broccoli. Mix in sunflower seeds and raisins. In a seperate bowl mix salad dressing, vinegar, sugar, milk and onion together. Pour over broccoli mixture and mix well. Chill over night.

Makes about 10 - 1 cup servings. 2.5 points per serving.

I know this was written a while back, but I just tried a Broccoli salad recipe from one of my old WW magazines, and it was sooo delicious...and I don't even consider myself a big raisin fan.

Broccoli Pasta Toss
4 servings/4 pts per serving
1 cup small broccoli flowerets
1-1/4 cups cooked shell pasta
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper

Dressing
1/3 cup reduced-calorie mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. sugar

Salt and pepper ( I just noticed that the recipe called for this, but I did not add salt or pepper to mine)

Combine all salad ingredients. Combine all dressing ingredients and blend well. Pour dressing over salad. Add salt and pepper to taste. Gently toss and serve.

This sounds great. I might make it and leave out the turkey bacon. I don't know why, but raisins have been tasting real good to me (and I love broccoli) - it's a great combination. Thank you!

Here is the broccoli salad that my ww's leader gave me. 1 bunch raw broccoli chopped, 1 cup fat free shredded cheddar cheese, 4 slices bacon fried crisp & crumbled, 1 small onion chopped, 1/4 cup rasins. Combine all in a large bowl & add following dressing. Blend in a small bowl & add to salad, 1 cup fat free mayo, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 Tablespoon vinegar. Mix salad well & chill at least a hour. Enjoy.
1 cup = 2 points.
