Broccoli & Grape Salad!! This is a refreshing salad that will be great for all of your summer BBQ’s! I recently made it for my Kentucky Derby Party and it was a delicious hit! Below is the recipe I got from my mama, but there are SO many variations of this on pinterest, like this one. Some add celery, some add onion, but all are the same basic idea.
1 bunch broccoli florets
2 cups seedless red grapes halved
1 cup slivered almonds
1/2 lb bacon fried crisp and crumbled
3/4 cup sunflower seeds
Optional: 1 cup of raisins
1 cup mayo
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon white vinegar
How to make:
Once you’ve got everything prepped, it’s just 4 easy steps!
1. Mix dressing in a small bowl
2. Mix all other ingredients, except grapes in a large bowl
3. Add dressing and mix
4. Gently fold in grapes
Seriously. It’s that easy. You spend more time halving the grapes than anything else.
You can made it a day ahead of time too. I don’t mix anything, but just cut up my broccoli and grapes and put in the fridge in separate containers. I also mix up my dressing too. The next day all I have to do is put it all into my serving bowl with the bacon and nuts. Easy Peasy!!
