I add sliced almonds, some salads have sunflowers. What does your family prefer? Also….no onions. My family wouldn’t eat it if I did! There are so many variations of this salad. This is the way my grandma made it so of course that’s the way I’m going to make it! Do you have a salad that you make because your grandma used to make it?
2 pounds fresh broccoli
1/2 pound bacon, cooked crispy
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Cut broccoli into bite size pieces. Combine with the bacon, raisins, and almonds. Mix together the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar until smooth. Stir in the salad, let chill. Keep refrigerated/cold until ready to serve. Best when served the next day.

Great looking salads. Broccoli salad is the ONLY way to consume broccoli!
Yum I used to make the same salad a long time ago .I forgot about it .Thank You for this recipe . I will definitely be making this !!!
very yummy but i used 1/4 teaspoon sugar. was that a misprint?
Hi Linda, No…the 1/4 cup sugar is correct. This is a sweet salad not a savory one.
I love this salad,but I have never made it before. I was wondering what kind of mayonnaise do you recommend. The real kind or can you use miracle whip..
The real kind for sure Shala. 🙂
