My family always begs for Broccoli Crunch Salad from Whole Foods Market. One day I realized I could make it myself. The results were stellar!

How to Make It

  2. Combine mayonnaise and next 3 ingredients (through pepper) in a large bowl. Add broccoli, currants, onion, and bacon; toss well.

  3. Tip: To avoid watery eyes while dicing an onion, peel it first, and chill it in the refrigerator before dicing.
