READY IN: 30mins




  • Cut off the broccoli heads, and separate into small florets.
  • Steam in a microwave for four minutes.
  • Bite a piece.
  • It should be crispy-tender and bright green.
  • Nuke for 1 minute at a time for 1 or 2 minutes more if required.
  • Dump immediately into icy cold water to stop the cooking process.
  • Remove into a colander and set aside to drain.
  • Put cooking oil in a skillet.
  • Chop bacon into tiny cubes and sauté on medium heat until crispy.
  • Drain and spread onto a paper towel to blot more grease (You may fry bacon whole if you wish, drain, cool and then crumble fine).
  • Make up the dressing.
  • Add the chopped onion, crumbled bacon and raisins to the dressing and mix well.
  • If you have a salad strainer, spin broccoli to remove more water.
  • Place broccoli in a bowl, pour dressing over it and mix lightly.
  • Refrigerate for 3 hours or more to chill and develop the flavors.
  • This salad will keep well in the refrigerator for three days.
