Broccoli Salad with Pecans, Cranberries, Raisins, and Bacon – healthy, DELICIOUS, gluten free salad, packed with fiber! One of my most favorite salads!
If you love nuts and dried fruit – this is a great recipe for you! I like to rehydrate dried cranberries and raisins in boiled water so that they are plumper and more tender to taste. I also like to slightly toast pecans in the oven before adding them to the salad – watch the pecans while they toast, because the pecans can burn easily. Because the salad is heavy on cranberries and raisins, you don’t really need a sweet dressing – 2 tablespoons of honey added to the simple homemade salad dressing should be just the perfect amount!
