Updated Sep 4, 2019

Ingredients

Salad

  • 3 cups fresh small broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 4 slices precooked bacon or 1/3 cup real bacon pieces

Dressing

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Steps

  • 1
    In large bowl, mix all salad ingredients except bacon.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix all dressing ingredients until well blended. Pour dressing over salad; toss gently to coat.
  • 3
    Just before serving, heat bacon slices as directed on package until crisp. Drain on paper towels; crumble. Stir bacon into salad.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To save about 110 calories and 12 grams of fat per serving, substitute reduced-fat Cheddar cheese for the regular cheese and use fat-free mayonnaise.
  • tip 2
    Either golden or dark raisins will work this recipe.
  • tip 3
    Stir the salad just before serving to redistribute all the ingredients. If the dressing is too thick, thin it with a little milk.
  • tip 4
    To make broccoli spears, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch stalks. For pieces, cut the 1/2-inch stalks crosswise into 1-inch pieces (or size desired).
