Terrific Tree Salad

  • Yield 8 servings

Broccoli, almonds, onions, and raisins topped with red wine vinegar


"The trees on my grandmother's lush property always reminded me of broccoli. She made up this summertime favorite as a way to celebrate my childhood imagination."


2 bunches broccoli, trimmed and chopped
8 crumbled bacon
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
3 teaspoons sugar


  1. Mix all ingredients and chill salad in refrigerator overnight before serving.

Tips From Our Test Kitchen: For a lower fat version of this tasty salad, use only 4 strips of bacon and substitute plain yogurt for the mayonnaise.
