Instructions for a bacon craisin and broccoli salad
Cut up the broccoli, but not too small. The dressing helps to soften the broccoli just a bit.
Add the bacon bits and craisins to the broccoli
Add all dressing ingredients to a bowl and mix up really well.
Now pour the dressing over the broccoli and mix up with tongs.
Hint: pour the dressing on an hour before eating. This will help all the tastes to blend. Make sure to mix up again before serving.
- Use raisins instead of craisins
- Add a slight spice with ¼ cup of red onions
- Add a crunch with 1 cup of sunflower seeds
Store the salad in the fridge covered with suran wrap. I think the salad tastes just as good, if not better then next day.
