Carol's Broccoli Salad

My SIL made this for us when we went back home last year. I could not leave without the recipe. It is so very good. Use as much or as little lemon juice as you want, I wrote 1/4-1/2 cup because it varies with people's tastes. I hope you enjoy it!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl mix together broccoli crowns, raisins, peanuts, onion, and bacon.
  2. In a separate bowl blend together the dressing ingredients.
  3. Pour dressing over the broccoli mixture and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Let the flavors blend, although it is pretty good right away, but definitely better after sitting.

What a great salad!I too reduced the amount of oil by half.I was out of raisins so I used crasins(dried cranberries).I also added peanuts right before serving as I'm not fond of soggy nuts!No bacon either as I'm vegetarian.But I loved it!So much better than all those cheese/mayo/bacon salads posted.I'm going to be making this a lot!!

This was a delicious blend of flavors -- and so different from the usual. My 5-year-old daughter would not stop eating her broccoli!! I did cut the dressing amounts in half, and used the juice of about 3 lemons. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.
