  1. The nutritional value on this recipe says a serving size is 6 grams. That cannot be correct – do you know the correct serving size?

    1. the Nutritional value I see on the post says 6 servings at 1 cup each. 6g is the number of carbs per serving. THANKS

  2. Linda Bryan says:

    I wish you would include the Weight Watchers points values with your recipes.

    1. Thanks. We wish we could accommodate all plans, but that isn’t feasible right now. We are currently recalculating for the new WW plans for purple, blue and green. I hope that helps. Best, Michele

      1. I love this salad! I too add sunflower seeds and raisins. With or without it’s good.

      2. How Long Should the Broccoli be Blanched??

  7. Karen Janssen says:

    Have you looked at the ingredients of the Truvia powder? I buy PURE Stevia extract by preference. The teaspoon equivalent is about half the size of a BB. Truvia contains other sugars to bulk it up. Alternatively, the plant is easy to grow and dry. For anything where color doesn’t matter (my bran crackers for instance) I just powder the dry leaves.

  8. Arlene Keehn says:

    I tried this recipe and found it too runny. I did not enjoy it at all.
    Will not be making it again.

    1. Sorry to hear that. If mine gets too runny, I just add more bulk, like extra broccoli. Thanks!
