Fresh Broccoli Salad

I have seen many variations on this recipe, changing almonds to sunflower seeds, golden raisins or craisins instead of regular and more. Anyway you make it, this is yummy!
Fresh Broccoli Salad


2 heads fresh broccoli

1 red onion

1/2 pound bacon

3/4 cup raisins

3/4 cup sliced almonds

1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup white sugar

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar



Place bacon in a deep skillet and cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Cool and crumble.


Cut the broccoli into bite-size pieces and cut the onion into thin bite-size slices. Combine with the bacon, raisins, your favorite nuts and mix well.


To prepare the dressing, mix the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar together until smooth. Stir into the salad, let chill and serve.
