I have about 20 different salads that I rotate through. My point on all this was that THIS recipe is perfect the way it is. If you change it, then it's not THIS recipe.
Dried cranberries in a broccolli salad and especially with real Mayo instead of Miracle Whip is really good. Adding diced tomatoes and cranberries into something with the sweetness of this recipe would destroy the flavor profile completely.
I didn't want to start a debate on salads. It started out as a discussion on Bigmista's salad.
