Cold Broccoli Salad

With no relief in sight from this heat wave, no one wants to stay in a hot kitchen.  This side dish requires minimum cooking and if you don’t put the bacon in, there’s no cooking.

  • 2 bunches of Broccoli, broken into florets and stems discarded
  • 10 slices of Bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
  • 1 small Sweet Onion, finely chopped
  • 2/3 cup of raisins

Toss the above ingredients in a large bowl. 


  • 1 cup Olive Oil mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Sugar or Sugar Substitute
  • 2 tablespoons of Vinegar (Can use White Vinegar or for a milder taste use White Wine Vinegar)

Mix well. Pour over broccoli mixture, put in storage container and chill in fridge at least 3 hours before serving.
