Best Ever Broccoli Salad
The BEST Broccoli Salad I've ever had! Packed full of broccoli, bacon, grapes, almonds and tossed together with a creamy dressing, every bite is delicious! The perfect addition to any BBQ, party, or potluck!
Servings 12 servings
- 1 cup light mayonnaise
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp celery seed
- 2 heads broccoli broken down into small florets
- 12 oz bacon cooked and chopped into small pieces
- 1/2 cup almonds toasted, slivered
- 2 green onions thinly sliced
- 1 cup celery chopped
- 1 1/2 cups red seedless grapes halved
Whisk together mayonnaise, sugar, red wine vinegar, and celery seed in a small bowl. Place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Combine broccoli, bacon, toasted almonds, green onions, celery and grapes in a large serving dish.
(To toast almonds, place on a large baking sheet and bake at 350F for 3-5 minutes stirring in between. Do not walk away! They will burn easily. The almonds are toasted when they turn light brown.)
Toss the dressing with the rest of the salad ingredients and stir.
Dressing can be added at the last minute if desired.
