I designed this Broccoli Grape Salad when I was looking for the best salads to serve at my meaty barbecues that would add substance and color to the table but still compliment my high quality proteins without stealing the show. Toss up crispy bacon bits with toasted pine nuts, fresh broccoli crowns, cucumber slices, juicy red grapes and aromatic, finely chopped, red onion. The dressing is a simple and tangy mix of mayonnaise, lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper, marinated together to allow the flavors to burst out. 

To make Broccoli Grape Salad, you will need the following ingredients:
