Broccoli Bacon Salad

Once in a while I need to eat my vegetables with some pizazz :)  I got this recipe from a family member of mine, and it is SO good!  This salad makes me want to eat my broccoli.  If you need a delicious vegetable or salad to go on the side of any meal, this one is definitely a good choice :)  Enjoy!

8 slices bacon, cooked
4 heads broccoli, chopped
1/2 cup fresh parmesan cheese, shredded
1/2 cup craisins or raisins (optional)
1/2 large red onion, chopped (optional)


1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2/3 cup mayo
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 cup white sugar
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt


1.  Crumble the bacon into small pieces.  Combine bacon, broccoli, cheese, and onion in a large bowl.
2.  In a small bowl, combine sauce ingredients.  Toss sauce with salad until mixed well.
3.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Add craisins right before serving.

*Hint:  If you are planning on having this salad a while after you make it, it doesn't keep very well in the fridge.  I would wait to mix the dressing in with the rest of the salad until ready to serve.


  1. This is a good one...I love it best w/craisins + slivered. Golden raisins are good too...I even had it with diced dried apricots once!

  2. This sounds wonderful, I have some left over bacon too!
