  • Method
    1 Bring a large pot of water, salted with a teaspoon of salt, to a boil. Add the broccoli florets. Cook 1-2 minutes, depending on how crunchy you want the broccoli. 1 minute will turn the broccoli bright green, and leave it still pretty crunchy. 2 minutes will cook the broccoli through, but still firm. Set your timer and do not cook for more than 2 minutes, or the broccoli will get mushy. Drain the broccoli and immediately put into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Let cool and drain.

    2 Combine broccoli florets, almonds, crumbled bacon, chopped onion, and peas in a large serving bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, cider vinegar and honey. Add dressing to the salad and toss to mix well. Chill thoroughly before serving.

    Serves 4 to 6.

  • This is the one I use. I got it a few years ago from Paula Deans website. It doesn't use RAW, only blanched broccoli.

    Broccoli Salad Recipe

    1 teaspoon salt
    5-6 cups fresh broccoli florets (about 1 pound of florets)
    1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
    1/2 cup cooked, crumbled bacon
    1/4 cup of red onion, chopped ( I use a lot more than 3/4 cup)
    1 cup of frozen peas, thawed (or fresh peas if you can get them)

    (I don't use her dressing either. I use a Honey Mustard salad dressing)
    1 cup mayonnaise
    2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    1/4 cup honey
