This Broccoli Salad Recipe is one of my all-time favorite salads. Bacon, raisins, almonds and a delicious salad dressing drizzled all over. It’s always nice to find a salad that’s great for year-round.
I’ve always loved broccoli, but I’ve never really liked onions a whole lot. But I must say, I have learned to love them in this delicious Broccoli Salad Recipe!

Broccoli Salad Recipe
There’s so much going on in this recipe, it’s hard to focus on just one taste.
It’s got bacon (need I say more?), golden raisins, almonds, onions and of course broccoli. Even though there is bacon and the dressing has mayo and some sugar…….it is still good for you. Kim says. Better than a big ole cheese burger right? I say all that broccoli is worth something. This is usually a great perfect summer salad, but I’ve been finding room for it this winter.
Maybe I’m just missing grill season, but whatever it is, it still taste delicious in February. It feels healthier in February. At least it gets me eating some raw veggies. Eating raw veggies in the winter just seems so un-natural to me. Yes, I do it and I should probably do it more and this is a great way.

This is one of my favorite recipes of all time. I am going to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing it. xoxo
I really love to add sunflower seeds and Craisins to mine as well for extra crunch and bite.
Yum! That’s a great idea!
