Ingredients

5 cups broccoli florets
6 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup currants
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
3 center-cut bacon slices, cooked and crumbled

Preparation

1. Steam broccoli, covered, 2 minutes. Plunge broccoli into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain and pat dry.

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

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