There are a couple other versions of broccoli salad posted in the thread below.

We started making this salad at my work this year. We use both sunflower seeds and raisins, and without the cheese. The members go nuts over it! I've even made it with the half-and-half mix of broccoli and cauliflower.

Yum, Texas. I love broccoli. I bet some cherry tomatoes would be an added colorful treat. We could call it a BB&T Salad. Sometimes I add mushrooms, raisins or Mandarin oranges. Anyone tried broccoflower? It's Dee-lish. Here's a mayo-based dressing to use on grilled veggies, fish (salmon), etc., if you would like try it in place of the cheese.

Lemon Basil Mayonnaise
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves

What is a take out? It's probably a very dumb question, but we are an international community, and my idea of a take out is where you buy food and bring it home.

It's often called "take away" in Europe, Sizzles and you are right it's just when you go and buy food from a restaurant (or have it delivered to you at home) and take it home with you

Lipton's makes a dry ranch dressing mix that I add to sour cream, and it's so delicious with raw broccoli...much better than the Hidden Valley stuff.
I have never made a broccoli salad, but if I did, that would be my dressing. I would add cooked crumbled bacon, grape tomatoes, chopped sweet red peppers, crumbled bleu cheese, and maybe a little cauliflower.

Mish, I found a nice head of brocciflower at the grocery the other day, and included it in the 7 layer salad that I took to the wake. It tastes just like cauliflower, but is a chartreuse green...very pretty.
I'd like to get ahold of some purple broccoli or cauliflower. It would be so pretty in salads! But I've only seen it in the seed catalogues. I grew plants in the greenhouse one year, but no one wanted them, and by the time I got a chance to get my garden in, it was way to late for cauliflower. Our summers here SIZZLE!
