I’ve been making this salad for years. I think I found the original recipe in some Heart Association literature years ago. Over time I’ve tweaked it to make it a little more “healthy”. I use center cut bacon that is lower in fat and calories. I’m sure you could use turkey bacon it you want. I also now use lite or low fat mayo.
This is so easy and so yummy. We’ll be enjoying it tomorrow with the rest of our Christmas dinner.
4 cups broccoli flowerets
¼ cup raisins
¼ cup red onion
8 slices center cut bacon, crumbled
1/3 cup chopped nuts (I use pecans)
1. Combine all ingredients. Then toss with dressing (recipe below). Chill at least one hour before serving.
¾ cup lite or low fat mayonnaise
¼ cup sugar
2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
