Warm Broccoli Mushroom Salad

  • Yield: 6 servings


4cups broccoli florets, fresh or frozen
3slices bacon, cut into small pieces
3/4cup finely chopped onion
2tablespoons raspberry or balsamic vinegar
8ounces (about 2 1/2 cups) white button mushrooms, sliced


  1. In a medium saucepan bring 1-inch water to a boil. Add broccoli; return water to a boil; reduce heat, simmer covered until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes; set aside.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, over medium-high heat cook bacon until nearly crisp and most of the fat is rendered out, about 4 minutes. Add onion, cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is crisp-tender and the bacon is crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in vinegar; cook and stir until vinegar is reduced by half, about 30 seconds. Add mushrooms, salt and reserved broccoli; toss to coat. Serve immediately while slightly warm.
