Members' comments
Cathy79 - Yummo!  I've made this a couple of times now, and really like it. Very fresh, and I like the sweetness of the apple and sultanas.  I usually add some extra mayonnaise.

Amanda - I had forgotten about it and it is a lovely salad.

CC - I make this one often( although off the UK Thermomix Website http://www.ukthermomix.com/recshow.php?rec_id=65, didn't realize it was posted here as well) but only use 50g of dried fruit but use 50g nuts+50g seeds.

McMich - A lovely salad. This will be a regular feature at our bbq's.

littleramblings - Had a variation on this today for lunch....super yummy! I didn't add onion or sultanas, but put in a handful of walnuts a carrot and some parsley, just chopped it all together. Very nice.

luel - Just had this salad for lunch - result - very good, yummy and visually appealing. Instead of spring onion I added a slice of red onion.  I also toasted 10gm sunflower seeds, 20 gm Hazelnuts, 20 gm almonds which I first whizzed slightly in the TM to make them not whole.  Added a bit of fresh salt and pepper at the end.  Only had sultanas so just used them (50gms) and that was plenty of fruit. Thanks for the great recipe.

vee - I just whipped up a half size batch for dinner for myself. This is the most green I have ever had on my plate! Love it! (Left out the raisins as I didn't have any).

Jamberie - Made this for the first time tonight and it certainly won't be the last. I really liked that the pieces weren't too small, compared with the coleslaw. I made Judy's Magic Mayonnaise to mix through it and it worked well. I just used 100g sultanas as I didn't have any raisins and I'll probably do that next time too. Thanks for a great recipe!

Emme - Made this salad today, we loved it.  Will definitely be making this again.  Also used Judy's magic mayonnaise. A lovely salad.

Thanks for the heads up Cathy - I've never eaten raw broccoli but summer is on it's way (I think!) and I really want to try a few different salads this year.

This one I will definitely have to make, it sounds lovely. It will soon be salad time, although we had a massive storm early this morning.

Seeing as this recipe has been bumped by the cyberstalker - isn't Nigel Day a top chef? Think I may have seen his name on the UK TM website????

Isn't that Nigel Slater Cookie?

Our Nigel Day only posted 7 times and that was within a month with nothing since. Each time it was a recipe so there is no info about who he is or where he lives although according to the local time on his profile, it must be on the other side of the globe.  Maybe Thermomixer knows who he is, he joined in 2008 so would have been one of the very early members.
