Broccoli Raisin Salad Recipe

For a simple but sensational side dish, I throw together this refreshing salad. I adjusted a friend's recipe to cut a few calories. The raisins add sweetness, and the bacon gives it a nice crunch.—Angela Oelschlaeger, Tonganoxie, Kansas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 16, 2014

So good! I also added some sunflower seed kernels for crunch. And bacon bits work fine if you don't feel like frying bacon.

Great, I used green onions instead of red. Yum!!

MY REVIEW

Love this salad! So easy and DELICIOUS. I always use apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar, makes it more fruity. And don't use red onion, I add sunflower seeds instead. Always let it sit in the fridge for 12 hours or so before serving, it's much better when rested! (As we all are!)

My family loves this. Even my picky dad who normally doesn't eat anything green! Sometimes I throw in some sunflower seeds. It's fantastic!
