A friend of mine brought this to a get-together. The minute I tasted it I knew I had to have the recipe. I have brought it to parties several times and am always asked for the recipe. Enjoy!

How to Make Midwest Broccoli Salad

Step-by-Step

  • 1Note: This recipe has to be made the day before serving.
    Cook Bacon until crisp. Chop and set aside.
  • 2I break up the broccoli the day before since this is the step that takes the longest. I actually do this while watching tv. Break the florets into small pieces and cut the stems small since the broccoli is eaten raw.
  • 3Mix mayo, sugar, vinegar and raisins together. Add to broccoli and scallions. Refrigerate overnight.
  • 4Add nuts and bacon just before serving.
