Broccoli salad with strawberries, blueberries, mango, apples, and bacon – with a homemade mayonnaise and sour cream based salad dressing. Deliciousness! Lots of healthy ingredients!
Broccoli and bacon go so well together in salads, such as in this Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad or in this Broccoli Bacon Salad with Pecans, Cranberries, Raisins. In this recipe, I am adding fruit and berries to the mix:
This salad is crunchy, sweet and savory at the same time! Love the colors and the freshness of the ingredients. It’s great for picnics, potlucks, and cook-outs!
An added bonus is that this salad is gluten free!
