Broccoli Salad with Raisins & Bacon

There’s something about the refreshing crunch of broccoli mixed with a slight, red onion-bite and naturally-sweet raisins that just works so well. This lightened-up version has less sugar and fat than more traditional recipes and it’s a great way to get in a serving (or two) of fruits and veggies. Pair this nutrition-packed salad with a holiday ham, or serve it this summer with a grilled turkey burger and fries.

  • Ingredients
    • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
    • 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

    • 2 broccoli heads, cut and trimmed into bite-sized florets
    • ¼ cup diced red onion
    • ½ cup raisins
    • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
    • Turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled

    1. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, mayonnaise and sugar until smooth. 1. Place broccoli florets, diced onion, raisins, sunflower seeds and bacon crumbles into a large mixing bowl. Add dressing and toss to mix. Serve chilled.

    Chef's Tips

    Try substituting 1½ cup halved red grapes for the raisins.
