Low carb broccoli salad

I'm going to give this a try- found it at

ORGANIC BROCCOLI SALAD (I use mostly organic ingredients)
  • 3 bunches fresh broccoli, chopped (UPDATE:  I’ve recently learned that broccoli should be cooked before eating, otherwise it will block absorption of certain nutrients.  SO from now on I will lightly steam it before tossing it in this salad.  I’m going to try to leave a bit of a crunch, hope I can pull it off…)
  • 2/3 c. raisins (I substitute with dried cherries or dried cranberries)
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped small
  • 10 slices of bacon (crisp-fried, crumbled) – from your local farmer if possible
Mix these ingredients together for the dressing and stir into salad ingredients:
  • 2 T. raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 c. mayo
  • 1/4 c. sugar (Original recipe said 1/2 c.!  I use palm sugar)
  • Optional:  1 T. fermented soy sauce
I also add crispy almonds on top – they add a very nice crunch!  Chill well before serving, if you can wait for it.
