This recipe for a healthy broccoli salad was given to me by my friend Aksana. Florets of broccoli are mixed with crumbled bacon, chopped onion, raisins and then tossed in mayonnaise and balsamic vinaigrette. Even confirmed broccoli haters have changed their minds after tasting this salad.

I usually blanch the broccoli for this salad (1 min in boiling water then put directly to ice water). Sometimes I use dried cranberries instead of raisins. Always get nice and refreshing taste.
