Healthy Broccoli Salad for Retirees



I’ve seen many recipes for Broccoli SLAW, but here is one for a Broccoli SALAD.  This delicious recipe was given to me by our insurance agent.* as a healthy retiree recipe.


5 strips bacon – cooked crisp & cut up

1 large head broccoli – cut into small pieces

2 green onions – chopped fine

1 medium carrot – grated

3/4 cup raisins

3/4 cup cashews – chopped

Mix all of the above in bowl and put in refrigerator until ready to serve –


1 cup mayonnaise

2 Tbs. vinegar

1/2 cup sugar

Mix dressing ingredients together and refrigerate for one hour or more before serving.  When ready to serve, pour dressing over salad, mix well and serve immediately.
