Broccoli Salad

Ingredients:Vegan Vegetarian Variation
5 cups Broccoli (Florets only)
1/2 cup Raisins (mixed colors if you want)
1/2 cup Bacon, cooked, crumbled
1/4 cup Red Onion, chopped
1 cup Peas (thawed frozen is ok)
1/2 cup Almond Slivers, toasted
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Dressing:
1 cup Mayonnaise
2 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
1/4 cup Honey

Directions:

  • In a small bowl combine Dressing ingredients and whisk together until all ingredients incorporated.
  • In a large bowl, combine Broccoli and Dressing. Make sure all pieces of Broccoli is covered.
  • Now add the Peas, Almonds, Onions, Raisins, and Bacon. Mix the ingredients well so that pieces of each are spread throughout the Salad.
  • Salt and Pepper to taste.

NOTES: Clean the florets and chop into bite size pieces (try to keep the florets intact as best you can). Some people like adding a cup of shredded Sharp Cheddar, but I don’t, as I think it weighs down the salad.

Variations:
Don’t like Mayonnaise, or want something healthier? Try Greek-Style Yogurt instead. (Variation for my friend Alia)
M›Ṽ: Instead of Bacon, either omit or use Bac-Os ® (a Soy product).
Ṽ›Ɣ: Not only use Bacos instead of Bacon, but use a vegan vinaigrette
