Broccoli, Bacon & Grape Salad

More broccoli salad!

The main differences between my previous recipes and this one is that there is no cheese in this recipe and in the other recipes, they use dried fruit (or no fruit at all).

Be sure to let it chill in the fridge for a few hours for the best flavor. Enjoy!

Variation #1 - I omitted the raisins and celery. I added about 1/3 cup very finely diced red onion, about 1/3 cup cherry craisins, about 1/4 cup chopped green onions, extra bacon and used all green grapes. Really, really delicious.

  1. Oh this sounds SO good. I have had a version with raisins instead of grapes but I think the grapes would be even better.

  2. YUM! This looks fantastic - I saw it once with raisins but I do not like them. I like grape though, but I'm with you the cranberry broccoli is just divine!
