Recipe: Fresh Broccoli Salad

You may think you wouldn't like this dish by looking at the ingredients, but let me tell you this is super yummy! The recipe in its present form is not one that is easy on the waistline, but can be tweaked by using light or fat free mayo instead of regular mayo, and using turkey bacon instead of regular bacon,etc.


Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Ready in: 30 mins


2 heads of fresh broccoli
1 red onion
1/2 pound bacon ( I used the pre-cooked, so cook time was about a min in microwave)
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup white sugar
2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar ( I used red wine vinegar)

Place bacon in a deep skillet and cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Cool and crumble.

Cut the broccoli in bite-size pieces and cut the onion into thin bite size slices. Combine with bacon, raisins, almonds; mix well.

To prepare the dressing, mix the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar together until smooth. Stir into salad and let chill and serve.
