Broccoli florets in a tangy dressing. The sweetness of the raisins is a perfect foil for the salt and savory taste of the bacon.

This was amazing! I took others advice and added craisins and turkey bacon. The calorie & fat count for this recipe was really scary so I tried to decrease them by using turkey bacon light mayo less peanuts and a little less sugar. We loved it and I'm going to make it often. Read More

This recipe is excellent. I have made it several times. As one other reviewer noted I used craisins instead of raisins (I hate raisins)....plus the cranberry color with the green broccoli looks great on the table around the holidays. I also used a red onion instead of green onion. Yum. Read More

Super simple to make and wonderful to eat. I've never cared for broccoli no matter how it was made until I had it like this. I have even adapted it for the South Beach Diet by leaving out the raisins using turkey bacon and Splenda instead of sugar and it is still wonderful. Read More

This is excellent!! I used Louis Rich turkey bacon because I prefer it to real bacon and substituted coarsely chopped pecans for the peanuts. I serve this at all our family gatherings in the summer and it gets rave reviews each time. Thank you for sharing! Read More
