Broccoli, Bacon & Green Grape Salad - A Family Favourite




Broccoli, Bacon & Green Grape Salad

When I think of this salad, I think of the smoky bacon flavour paired with the balsamic vinegar dressing and of the sweet green grapes that liven up the serious broccoli. I also think of how almost everyone I make this salad for thinks it is weird until they have tasted it, and then they want more and more because it is awesome. I mean really, how can one go wrong with bacon??

I came across this simple (yet chock full of nutrients recipe) on the Paleo Diet Lifestyle website a few years ago and it has been a family favourite ever since.
