Broccoli salad

This recipe is not mine and it is not new, but it is very good. I have made it quite a few times in the past few months. It makes me eat more raw broccoli and there ain't anything wrong with that!
Broccoli Salad
2 heads fresh broccoli
1/2 pound bacon
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup sliced almonds/pecans
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons white  vinegar

Place bacon in a deep skillet and cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Cool and crumble.
Cut the broccoli into bite-size pieces. Combine with the bacon, raisins, your favorite nuts and mix well.
To prepare the dressing, mix the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar together until smooth. Stir into the salad, let chill and serve.

  1. I'm not a huge fan of broccoli, but this looks pretty good. May have to give it a try.


I always love hearing from you!
