Broccoli Bacon Salad

Bacon lover or broccoli fan?​ Frankly, I haven’t heard many people rhapsodize over broccoli they way some do over bacon.  But with this combination, you get the best of broccoli nutrition and the taste of bacon. In this case, it’s turkey bacon, so pretty healthy after all. 

I get more raves for this recipe than almost any of my many other ones. Men in particular give it a thumbs up. Again, it must be the bacon. Great for large gatherings.


Servings: 8-10     Serving size: 1/2 cup    Preparation time: 30 minutes  ​Refrigeration time before serving: 45 minutes minimum

Ingredients 5 cups, broccoli, cut into small floweretts 5 pieces green onion, chopped 5 pieces turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled 2/3 cups raisins 1/3 cup sunflower seeds 1/2 cup light mayonnaise 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt 2 tablespoons Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar       (Trader Joe’s) 1 tablespoon sugar ​1 teaspoon salt

Directions 1. Combine the first five ingredients. 2. Mix together the last five ingredients for the dressing, mixing well until the sugar is completely dissolved. 3. Add the dressing to the vegetables, coating well. 4. Transfer to serving bowl and refrigerate until ready to eat. Best if refrigerated at least one hour before serving.

I hope you enjoy these recipes. Let me know which one’s you’ve tried and how they turned out.
