On summer days when I’m busy working in my studio and it’s warm out, I like having ready-made salads in my fridge that refresh me and keep me going (you know what it’s like when you get into something that you love, and you don’t want to pause it). Yesterday was one of those days, and this is one of my favourites for such an occasion. One thing I love about this Broccoli Salad is that it is so easy to prepare at any time, and it keeps well in the fridge for days. It’s even simple enough for my husband to make ;) . It is enough filling to be eaten by itself, and it also goes great with any picnic or indoor meal.
Here is what you do:
5 cups broccoli florets
3 cups seedless red grapes
1/2 cup sliced celery
3 green onions, sliced
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1/2 lb. bacon, sliced and cooked
(I use turkey bacon)
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1.- Wash the vegetables and fruit (first four on ingredient list) and combine them in a bowl.
2.-Mix the sugar, vinegar and mayonnaise in a separate container, and drizzle over the veggies and fruit.
3.- Add the bacon and toasted almonds before serving.
Ready to enjoy!
