he retro broccoli grape salad was popular for a reason — it’s amazing, especially my Mom’s, which was the hit of every summer party. An unlikely combo of broccoli, grapes, almonds, and bacon in a creamy dressing seriously works.
3/4cupmayo(I use Duke's; Mom always loved Hellman's)
1/4cupwhite granulated sugar
1tablespoonapple cider vinegar
for the salad
1cupgreen and red grapes,cut in halves or quarters
3strips turkey bacon,fried crisp and crumbled
1green onion,very thinly sliced
prepare the dressing
Whisk all of the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl, and set aside.
prepare the salad
Toss the broccoli, grapes, celery, almonds, and crumbled turkey bacon together in a medium bowl. Fold in the dressing until the salad is coated (you might not use all of it; if not, save it, too). For the best flavor, refrigerate the salad for a minimum of 6 hours or overnight. (Refrigerate the green onions, too.) Before serving, toss to recoat the salad (add the extra dressing, if you had any and if it needs it), and sprinkle the green onions over the top.
