  • Cream dressing for broccoli salad that Costco sells.
    I am looking for the recipe or a brand of dressing that would match the one that is sold in the broccoli salad that Costco sells... it is sweet and sooooo good. The items in the salad are easy to duplicate... broccoli, raisins, almonds... well really need to check it again as I havent had it since early summer... but it is delicious.... Would like to serve it at Holiday and Open house parties in the next few months..... TIA

    I would never buy a Broccoli Salad dressing with unknown ingredients/additives  after this one:

     

    From my friend Nadine:

     

    When my friend gave me this recipe ...which granted is a little more work than most Broccoli Salads I have made, she told me it was addictive!
    Well only 2/3 of it made it to the table as I had to TASTE TEST several times. LOL
    My brother came over and I caught him swiping some more than once (guess he was taste testing too! ) before dinner.Here it is.

      


    Addictive Broccoli Salad

    Custard Dressing
    1 egg lightly beaten
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
    1/4 cup vinegar
    1/4 cup water
    Whisk together stirring constantly over medium heat until thickened (I add the egg last folding it into about a half cup of warm dressing first) so egg doesn't cook .
    Remove from heat, stir in 1 TBSP butter
    Cool slightly then stir in 1/2 cup Mayo (I like Hellmanns lower fat but not fat free Mayo) Chill.

    Toss together 4-6 cups fresh broccoli florets, 6 slices cooked and crumbled bacon,1/2 medium Vidalia onion diced. .

    ****The last items are optional and dependant on taste and or occasion:
    1 can drained Mandarin oranges
    2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
    1/2 cup slivered almonds
    1/2 cup raisins

    Fold dressing into salad ingredients. Chill.

     I have made Alliea's Broccoli Salad with the Custard Dressing many times.....the dressing makes it outstanding.  I am always approached for the recipe.......one lady said please don't leave until I have that recipe or a way to reach you to get it.  Give it a try, I think you will be thrilled.  Thanks Alliea and thanks to your friend.

    Denise, I tought I posted my broccoli cauliflower salad but can't find it.  It has basically the same dressing as the pasta broccoli salad but nowhere near as much (as the pasta absorbs a lot of the dressing).  This is a very sweet and creamy dressing.  My family fights over it at gatherings. The other salad has broccoli, cauliflower, mozzarella, raisins or craisins, onion and crumbled bacon.

    Pasta Broccoli Salad

    2 bundles of broccoli, cut into very small pieces
    1 16 oz. pkg. shredded mozzarella cheese
    1 medium red onion, finely chopped (often I omit this)

    1 lb. bacon, cubed, fried crisp & drained
    1 large pkg. tri-colored pasta spirals, cooked & drained
    1 green pepper, chopped
    1 red pepper, chopped
    1 yellow pepper, chopped

    Dressing:
    1 quart mayonnaise (NOT Miracle Whip)
    1/2 quart sugar
    4-5 Tbl. cider vinegar
    1 Tbl. Beau Monde (can omit but worth using)
    pepper to taste

    Pour dressing over mixed salad. Mix together. Refrigerate. Best if made the day before you plan on serving it.  Add the bacon just before serving so that it remains crisp.

    If you don't want to make the dressing from scratch, a good one to try is Marzetti's Light Slaw Dressing. I really like it on the broccoli salad.

    A super simple dressing that I make all the time for broccoli and also fruit salad is:

    1/2 cup of mayonnaise

    1/3 cup Dannon Light & Fit Vanilla Flavored yogurt

    Mix well.

    Custard Dressing

     

    Good Morning

     

    Custard dressing is the title of the recipe for the Broccoli salad dressing , rather than an ingredient.

     The custard is a little more work- (not much though LOL)  than the standard Mayo , sugar, vinegar mix but brings a different , creamy flavor preferred by (in my experience serving it)  most who try it.
