Golden raisins and honey add sweetness to this chopped broccoli salad, while bacon, onion and white balsamic vinegar add savory notes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook bacon in a large skillet or on a griddle over medium heat until browned and crisp. Drain on paper towels. Crumble into 1/2-inch pieces; set aside.

Step 2

Cut florets from broccoli stems and chop into small pieces. Transfer to a salad bowl and toss with minced onion and raisins.

Step 3

In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and vinegar until smooth. Add honey, salt and pepper, whisking to combine. Pour dressing over broccoli mixture and toss to coat evenly. Crumble bacon pieces over broccoli slaw and serve immediately.

the dressing is out of this world!  i added some garlic/cayenne honey to it.   instead of raisins, used grapes and dried apricots.    hormel bacon bits for ease.

Made this for a BBQ, it was quite tasty! Doubled the recipe so as to have enough for a big group. Everything was good, though I wasn't sure about the dressing. I thought it'd be creamy but it was much more of a vinaigrette. I added some extra mayo to thicken it a little bit. But once everything was mixed together, it was very tasty! Would definitely make again.

Delicious enough to feel like a guilty pleasure! I made this for a potluck at work, and added sunflower seeds, carrots and red cabbage for crunch, color and even MORE nutritional goodness. Will make again and again.

This was very good and well received by guests. It needs another texture to kick it over the top.

This was great. Just make this with Kielbasa on the grill . It is tart and sweet. I made it without the onions because my husband hates onions and it was still really good!

Yum! I substituted with what I had on hand - craisins, turkey bacon, sauteed yellow onions - instead of raisins, bacon, and red onion. It was delicious! I was skeptical because I tasted the dressing itself, but it was fabulous when all put together and chilled. Also, I blanched the broccoli to make sure the texture/flavor would be good.

This is delish...I substituted craisins for raisins..and the bacon is not really necessary in this side dish. I will make and serve again.

This is so delicious, everyone always loves it and it goes with anything! I sometimes like to swap out halved red grapes for the raisins.
