Broccoli Salad

Hey y’all! I hope you are having a good week! This past weekend, I made a delicious and easy broccoli salad for our church potluck. This broccoli salad recipe is from my mom and I modified it just a tad to reduce the sugar. The crunch of the broccoli and sweet raisins with the tangy onions and dressing is a delicious combination.

  2. Found a way to make this quick and easy when in a hurry.(I am sure that I am not the only one that remembers a commitment really late the night before)

    For Broccoli use a bag of prewashed Broccoli flowers (cut in half or thirds) plus a bag of broccoli slaw.

    For bacon bits use the real bacon bits(or real turkey)

    Also, for diabetics this works great with splenda.

    This is one of my family favorites…

  3. I make this salad quite often in the summer, but use sunflower seeds instead of the pecans. Also, it’s much better the second day! =)

  4. So different than the broccoli salad my mom makes (cheese, bacon, broccoli, mayo, etc.). This doesn’t look as “heavy”, but still delicious! Adding broccoli to my shopping list. :)

  5. Instead of sugar, I use about 1/8 tsp of NuStevia Pure White Stevia Powder. Yummy.

    This is a great recipe – I’m glad to have a “less sugar” version! This recipe is also good with dried cranberries!

  7. Great recipe! We enjoy this often in the summer. Like your version with the reduced sugar.

    A friend gave me this recipe years ago, she didn’t use nuts but did use carrots and celery. I thought it was about the best thing I’d ever tasted. Her dressing directions were really vague, mix mayo, sugar and vinegar in a one cup jar.

  9. Great way to enjoy broccoli!

    It looks delicious! I’m wondering.. you put the broccoli uncooked? or you boil it a bit first?

    Thanks ;)
