Crunchy Broccoli, Raisins, and Walnut Salad

Crunchy Broccoli, Raisins and Walnut Salad ~ is one refreshing and colorful salad you'll want to put on your list of salads this summer.  This is the salad you'll want to make over and over again because it's loaded with fresh vegetables as it offers a superb flavor and a nice crunch with every bite.

I decided to revive this salad from our archives again since it's become our all time favorite. This salad is simply tossed with fresh chopped broccoli, fresh chopped cabbage, raisins, dried cranberries and walnuts with a sweet, Dijon vinaigrette. Then topped with crispy bacon just before it's served.  It was so amazing, we all couldn't stop eating it


Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! Wishing you and your loved ones a Blessed Easter!! 
We hope it's filled with family, friends and delicious food!!
