HOW TO MAKE AWESOME COLORFUL BROCCOLI SALAD WITH BACON
Your mouth will do a Happy Dance with the crunch, sweetness, and saltiness from the bacon in this Broccoli Salad. It is so YUMMY! I use mayonnaise, honey, and a little lemon juice for the dressing. I enjoy this combination with the sweetness of the Craisins, the red onion, the salty, crunchy bacon and sunflower seeds with the broccoli. Who wouldn’t eat their broccoli in this salad? I could eat this broccoli salad all the time. If you have family members who do not like broccoli, have them try this salad. Since this Broccoli Salad includes a slightly sweet dressing, they may like this broccoli. I would love to hear what you think of this Broccoli Salad if you give this recipe a try. If you enjoy broccoli, you may enjoy my Broccoli Rice & Cheese Casserole too.

To make this salad, you simply chop everything and toss it together with the dressing.
This dressing is simple but incredibly delicious. It includes mayonnaise, honey, and lemon juice and set aside.
Fresh bacon is amazing in this salad. Cook your bacon in the oven while chopping the vegetables. See my blog for Oven Fried Bacon. The easiest way to cook bacon.
Chop the broccoli and onions. Grate the carrots.
Next, you add the sunflower seeds and the Craisins to the broccoli, carrots, and onion.
You finish this salad by tossing all ingredients well with the prepared dressing.
