Why Make Broccoli Salad With RaisinsEven if your guests aren't broccoli fans, they'll love this combination of vegetables and fruits. Raisins make this broccoli salad extra special. We're adding bacon to this class salad too.
How to Prepare the Broccoli for Broccoli Salad With RaisinsBegin by preparing your fresh broccoli. Take 2 large stalks of washed broccoli and cut and dispose of the large base stem. Then take a small knife and slice away all leaves and smaller stems. Cut broccoli into smaller stalks. Then lightly steam the broccoli for 1-2 minutes. Rinse the cooked broccoli with cold water for crunchy results. Take smaller stems and slice into ½ inch pieces to add to your salad. Continue cutting down the broccoli stalks into smaller bite size pieces.
