Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad
This recipe came from my grandma. She's always made it and it's a huge favorite of mine! It's simple and the broccoli is fresh and packs a great crunch. It boasts a sweet simple dressing that matches nicely with the smokiness of the chopped bacon. This salad is a winner. It makes a big batch but it's easy to half.


10 Cups broccoli florets rinsed and drained very well.
1 Cup raisins or more
12 strips of crisp cooked bacon crumbled

2 Cups mayonnaise
1 Cup sugar
4 Tbl. white vinegar

Make dressing and toss with all the ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate and
mix bowl every so often to get the dressing distributed well.

*Sometimes, I need to make extra dressing, depends on
how well the broccoli absorbs it.

I'm going to go serve myself a big helping right meow. Have a great weekend, y'all! xo


  1. Looks wonderful! Only thing is I wouldn't use bacon, because I don't eat pork.

  2. I was just googling broccoli salad recipes!! My FIL has grown a brocolli the size of my head and I cant fit it in the fridge...and Im going to a BBQ tonight so I thought Id try a new salad...This is exactly what I was going for! Thanks :)
    And Heck yes on the bacon.

  3. I make this often and it's always a crowd pleaser. Try dried cranberries instead of raisins next time and maybe add some pine nuts or chopped pecans. Delish!
