I've been looking for a healthy version to make. Thanks so much. :-) Kat December 6, 2011 at 4:02 pm I have made this salad about a half dozen times already. Everyone I've made it for really loves it, THANK YOU. The salty tartness of the olives and the red onion, combined with the dressing and cheese, work great. The best thing is that it tastes even better the next day, so I make enough to have leftovers for lunch. Some chopped fresh dill really adds a lot! Also have made with crumbled blue cheese. Alison February 16, 2013 at 10:11 pm What is the serving size?? Angela March 6, 2013 at 11:52 pm Hello - I made this tonight and it was really good! Thank you! I omitted the olives (I can't stand green olives)...but otherwise, very delish! It seems like it may be more of a spring/summer salad, so I'll be making this again for sure!! Brooke Griffin "Skinny Mom" March 7, 2013 at 12:22 am Hi! Serving Size is 1/12 of the recipe:) I'm so glad that it has been a hit! I make this all of the time at my house too! Kelley March 9, 2013 at 8:24 pm Is the serving size a 1/2 cp, 3/4 cp, a full cup...? I know it says 1/12 but do you know what that is equivalent to? Thanks! I don't want to have to stand there making 12 piles, lol. Becci March 22, 2013 at 10:31 am You shouldn't have to make 12 piles, if you have a large measuring bowl, 8 cup or 12 cup, measure all of it in there, then divide by 12. I am going to make this but I will definitely cut the recipe in half. There are only 2 of us and even that much may be too much for us. One head of broccoli will last us a week. I do love this salad though, and will be taking it to work for lunch. So half the recipe will be perfect. Jeanene March 26, 2013 at 7:29 am It drives me nuts when they say 12 servings eat one serving size? What is that? Brooke 1/2 would be 6 servings, so that is wrong. Brooke Griffin "Skinny Mom" March 26, 2013 at 11:03 am Hi Jeanene, thanks for the question. 1/3 cup, but I am making this recipe on Sunday and will find out for sure as I will measure that recipe by cups. I'll post when I make adjustments on Sunday. Thanks! Jeanene Bagley Fowle March 26, 2013 at 8:08 am Brook we know 1/12 of the recipe is the serving size, but how much is that. Geez these directions drive me nuts when they say 12 servings, serving size 1. What is it? Like Kelley said is it 1/2 , 3/4 1 cup. How much does it make total? Jeanene Bagley Fowle March 26, 2013 at 5:56 pm Hi Brooke I'm sorry I misread your answer you didn't say 1/2 you said 1/12 which of course we all know if it makes 12 servings. I still want to know what one serving is though and will wait for your answer. Heather March 26, 2013 at 11:55 pm Hi! Thought I'd pass along this recipe has been stolen on fb by some of the "pampered chef" pages. This one in particular. https://www.facebook.com/MicheleMyPamperedChefLady She doesn't give you ANY credit - so unless you are Michele you may want to have words with her/try to get her blocked. Good luck! ps... a local blogger I am friend of friends with wrote a blog post about this new thievery trend. http://iambaker.net/what-every-facebook-user-needs-to-know/ Brooke Griffin "Skinny Mom" March 27, 2013 at 9:18 am Thanks for letting me know, Heather, I really appreciate it!! Jess July 27, 2013 at 10:23 pm Can you use frozen broccoli/ cauliflower? Also, I can't have dairy- is the cheese necessary? Thank you. Jeanene September 24, 2013 at 2:00 pm I'm still waiting for the answer what is 1/12 of the recipe please make it easier on us. We are not stupid but who wants to try to get 12 servings and go from there. Come on give us a break. Michelle E January 10, 2014 at 11:26 am Not that I think it would take me and my hubby long to go thru, but how long do you think it'd last in fridge before getting too mushy. I may just do what another poster said and cut the recipe in half. TY , looking forward to trying. Brooke Griffin January 10, 2014 at 4:08 pm Test comment with Link Jessica January 10, 2014 at 6:02 pm My goodness Brooke, I just had to comment after reading all of Jeanene's comments. How hard is it for people to figure out the serving size themselves. Forgot the fact that you even answered their question of 1/3 cup serving size. Read through the comments people! Geeze oh Pete, that "drives me crazy" when people expect bloggers to know all the answers/answer their silly little questions, look it up yourself people. Anyways... This recipie sounds wonderful, can't wait to try it and thanks for figuring out all of the nutritional information too!! :) Dennis Briseno Shiri January 11, 2014 at 6:25 pm LOVE IT Melanie January 21, 2014 at 4:51 pm Do you need to boil the broccoli and the cornflower? Everett Kaylan February 3, 2014 at 10:06 pm LOVE IT email@example.com February 9, 2014 at 1:54 pm LOVE IT kathy February 17, 2014 at 6:55 am I just love salads, this one looks so good, gonna try it out. Elyzabeth Michelle March 24, 2014 at 11:34 am LOVE IT Anonymous March 27, 2014 at 11:50 pm Use red grapes instead of olives. tastes so good. Brooke Griffin March 28, 2014 at 9:11 am that is a great suggestion! Petunia April 13, 2014 at 9:59 pm I must be mis-reading something. Everyone keeps asking what a serving is and it clearly says a serving is 1 cup!! I am wondering if there is another dressing I can use. Ranch makes me sick in the stomach. Luke Carter May 15, 2014 at 4:14 am I made this yesterday and it is very nice. We don't seem to have low fat ranch dressing in the UK so I used a low fat garlic dressing instead. I may experiment with different dressings. I also added more olives but it could still use more I think :) Brooke Griffin May 19, 2014 at 9:30 am So glad that you enjoyed the recipe Luke and thanks for the suggestions;) Kasia Klimova February 21, 2015 at 11:30 am Lovely idea!! Yum Disa Qarash March 5, 2015 at 4:59 am Hi ...it looks yummy but did you boil brocoli first ?? Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
