Broccoli Salad with Bacon


I love this fresh and delicious recipe for Broccoli Salad With Bacon and I am so happy to share it with you now. I don’t know about you, but when the weather starts to get warmer and the days begin to get longer I start to crave fresh healthy salads. This easy broccoli salad with bacon is one of my all time favorites. 

As well as being totally delicious, this cold broccoli salad with bacon couldn’t be easier to make either. Start by frying bacon until crisp. Once the bacon is drained and cool, chop or crumble the bacon. Separate the broccoli into florets and add them to a large salad bowl. Add red onion, raisins and bacon to the broccoli. Make a dressing from mayo, vinegar and sugar. Dress the salad and chill before serving.

Steps to make Broccoli Salad with Bacon


Cook the bacon


Cook 10-12 strips of bacon in a large skillet until slightly crisp. Drain on paper towels and chop into small pieces or crumble.

Assemble the salad


Add a medium chopped red onion, ½ a cup of raisins and the crumbled bacon to the broccoli. Toss well to combine.


Make dressing


In a small bowl, mix 1 cup of mayo with 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and 2 teaspoons of sugar.

Sailor Mahaffie

Kids actually ate this salad just because I said it has bacon in it, LOL!

Angelique Lien

Didn't add any raisins at all because I hate the flavour but without them this was great!

Cecily Arita

Healthy for sure, maybe not the bacon but the salad itself is really nutritious.

I suggest avoiding the sauce if you want to keep a healthy diet, sugar isn't very good for you.

THis broccoli salad with bacon and the garlic nettle soup are my two favs, can't get enough of either of them.

Grayson Fezza

Perfect for a healthy little snack and you can even bring it to work because it's so simple to make.

Abbie Stinchfield

I made this as a side dish cause it's not really filling on it's own, so made it before I made the soy sauce citrus chicken, they both go well together.

I added a lot more to this like some sundried tomatos, cheese and plus a bit more spices, it was wonderful.

Natalya Longo

Emi Nawrot

Delicious and simple salad, exactly what I expected it to be.

Calista Kurtic

Love me some salad with meat, this was really good.

Alaysia Geagan

Wasn't sure this would be enough for me for work but turns out it's more filling than it looks, happy with the taste too.

I used bacon bits instead of making the bacon to make things a bit faster for me so I can pack it to go on my road trip :)


I love broccoli! Thanks for sharing!
