I loved the broccoli bacon raison salads from the salad bar but since moving to Texas I haven't seen it. This recipe is my version to fill that craving. Cook time is chillin out in the fridge time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop broccoli into small, bite-sized florets.
  2. In a large bowl toss together the broccoli, shredded carrot, chopped shallot, raisons and cashews.
  3. Wisk together dressing ingredients in a separate container, preferably one with a lid (I use an old pickle jar-clean of course). If using a jar just cover and shake well.
  4. Pour half of the dressing over the broccoli mixture and combine. Adding more as you see fit (if you like a wetter salad or a drier consistency).
  5. Crumble the bacon over the top and chill for an hour.
  6. You can also leave off the bacon and chill without it, then adding it just before serving.
  7. The leftover dressing can be used for other salads like potato or macaroni. Or maybe as a marinade for chicken before grilling it.
