Fresh Broccoli Salad

I’m one of those people that always ask a server at a restaurant if their broccoli is florets or trees. I hate the huge pieces with the tough skin that is hard to eat. Really, unless it’s steamed or cooked into a recipe I’m not a huge fan of fresh broccoli – that is of course it’s in broccoli salad! It’s crunchy, sweet, salty and tastes like spring! It’s a great salad to go with meals or to take to your summer barbecue.

  • 2 heads fresh broccoli
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 pound bacon
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar


  1. Cook 1/2 pound of bacon in a skillet until crisp. Set aside on paper towel to cool. Once cool crumble into small pieces.
  2. Cut the heads of broccoli into small pieces, wash and put into a large bowl.
  3. Chop your onion and add to the bowl.
  4. Add in your cranberries, crumbled bacon and almonds.
  5. In a small bowl mix together your mayo, sugar and white wine vinegar. Mix until smooth.
  6. Stir your dressing into the bowl until all ingredients are well coated.
  7. Cover and allow it to cool for at least 30 minutes before eating.
