Broccoli, Bacon & Raisin Salad
My Broccoli, Bacon & Raisin Salad recipe is a time tested family favorite with only 5 ingredients.
- 1 bunch of broccoli
- 6 pieces of bacon cooked and crumbled
- 1 small onion cut into thin pieces
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup pecan halves
- DRESSING INGREDIENTS
- ¾ Cup Mayonnaise
- 3 Tbsp. vinegar
- 4 Tbsp. sugar
- Mix dressing ingredients well and set aside.
- Cut the broccoli into little bite sized pieces. (Be sure to always wash and drain the broccoli)
- After cooking the bacon, drain on paper toweling and crumble. I put mine in the mini-food processor.
- Toss all ingredients into a large salad serving bowl.
- Pour dressing over salad and toss well to cover.
- Make your salad a few hours in advance and refrigerate to allow the flavors to marinade.
- Serve and enjoy.
5 easy to prepare ingredients! I like easy, don’t you!
- Broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
- Bacon, cooked, drained and crumbled
- Chopped Pecans
- Onions, cut into small pieces (Red are good in this salad but I used Vidalia onions during Vidalia onion season)
Toss all of the prepared ingredients into your salad serving bowl. Pour the dressing over and mix well. Refrigerate for several hours to allow the flavors to marinade. You can prepare this salad a day in advance.
Broccoli Salad Dressing
This is the simple, easy recipe I use for my salad but you can use any dressing you prefer.
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- 3 Tbsp. vinegar
- 4 Tbsp. sugar
Mix all ingredients well and pour over salad.
Have fun serving your salad at summer get-together’s! I used a small jelly jar and a summer themed coffee mug to serve mine!
Make your salad several hours in advance and refrigerate to allow the flavors to marinade.
