broccoli bacon salad

Amys Gluten Free Pantry

This is for my friend Brad who is trying to sneak more vegetables into his kid’s diet. Not only is this delicious, but the veggies are raw – another nutritional bonus.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Yield: Serves 4-6

12 oz. raw broccoli florets (tips) from about 3 big heads
4 slices cooked bacon (can substitute with turkey bacon)
1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
1/2 c. dried currants or raisins
1/2 c.
mayonnaise (Best Foods is GFCF, but not soy-free)
2 T white or cider vinegar
2 tsp. agave syrup
(or 1 tsp. sugar)
salt to taste

  1. While bacon is cooking, cut florets into small, bite-sized pieces and add to serving dish.
  2. Add onion, currants or raisins, and crumbled bacon to broccoli.
  3. Whisk mayonnaise, vinegar and agave together with a fork or whisk and pour on top of broccoli.
  4. Mix well and add a pinch of salt to taste.
    This holds up great the next day, too.
