This is my favourite broccoli salad recipe. It’s crunchy, fresh, and so easy to put together. Also, it’s broccoli salad with bacon, so that makes it even better.
This easy broccoli salad recipe is made with fresh broccoli, making it super healthy. The dressing is light and tangy, perfectly complementing the sweetness of the raisins and red onion. The bacon and sunflower seeds add the perfect amount of saltiness, so you don’t need to add more salt.
You can prepare the broccoli salad recipe ahead of time, and just add the dressing when you are ready to serve. Making it perfect for summer BBQ’s.
It’s a crunchy make-ahead salad that’s sure to be a favourite.
