  • 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.
