I halved the recipe and blanched the broccoli first. Had shallots and apple cider vinegar on hand, substitutions worked out fine. I thought bacon was an odd ingredient, but it works. Family loved it, making again tonight.
So good I was told to make it again - immediately!
Broccoli Slaw/Craisins Salad
Enjoyed!! Made the salad alittle differently than the original the second time -I used broccoli slaw instead of broccoli florets.
Delicious but much tooo sweet
This was a very good side dish with my ham at Easter. I thought that 1/4 cup of sugar sounded like way too much. I only put in half of that, and it was still too much. Next time I will only put in 1-2 Tablespoons and I think it will be fine.
I like this without the cheddar & sunflower seeds. I've also added chopped pecans. Good flavors and colors for a holiday party.
