Broccoli Salad With Bacon

Broccoli Salad With Raisins and Bacon

This great-tasting broccoli salad is packed with flavor and crunch, with raisins, sunflower seeds, and a tangy slightly sweetened mayonnaise dressing. Feel free to use pine nuts in this recipe instead of the sunflower seeds. Also, it's easy to reduce the sugar in this recipe. I add only a tablespoon or two of sugar and use light mayonnaise, and it's still delicious.

Yield: Serves 8


  • 5 to 6 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup cooked, crumbled bacon
  • 1/4 cup of red onion, chopped
  • 1 cup of frozen peas, thawed, optional
  • .
  • Dressing:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar, or to taste


Combine broccoli florets, raisins, sunflower seeds, crumbled bacon, chopped onion, and peas in a large serving bowl; toss to combine. In a separate bowl or large cup, whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Add dressing to the salad and toss to mix well; chill thoroughly before serving.
Broccoli salad serves 4 to 6.

Delicicious - but very sweet!, Member SapphireGirl51

I chose this recipe because it had so many favorable reviews! I followed the advice of many others and reduced the sugar to 1/4c. I used Miracle Whip instead of mayo, so the sugar should have been reduced even more. I used pine nuts,craisins, red onion. Took this to a St Patty's Day party and everybody raved about it! Will definitely make again and gave out the recipe to several at the party. This is a keeper!
