I love salads in the summer time. They are the perfect choice for lunch or a light supper. There’s no need to heat up the house or spend hours in the kitchen. Salads are quick to prepare and this healthy broccoli salad with bacon is high in fiber to fill you up.

Healthy Broccoli Salad with Bacon
The ingredients for this healthy broccoli salad with bacon can be changed depending on what you have in the house at the time. The base, of course, is broccoli but I love to add in fresh greens to give it an extra boost.
In addition, I toss in cheese, dried fruit, onion and bacon. In this version, I’ve added feta cheese, raisins, red onion and bacon crumbles.
You could try it with blue cheese and dried cranberries for a different taste.
This is an easy to make salad that takes practically no time at all to prepare. This is the dish that I tend to take to BBQs and picnics in the summer. I love using Newman’s Own Creamy Caesar Dressing because it’s made with no artificial ingredients, preservatives, flavors or colors.
Why not add a few pumpernickel croutons to the top?
Best dressing for broccoli salad
With every bottle of Newman’s Own salad dressing that you buy, you’re helping charitable causes. Newman’s Own dressing makes a difference in your salad, while it also makes a difference for charity. Paul Newman and Newman’s Own Foundation have given more than $430 million to thousands of charities since 1982. As Paul Newman said, “From salad dressing, all blessings flow.”
Newman’s Own is inviting consumers to showcase how they take their salad from ordinary to extraordinary using Newman’s Own Dressing for an opportunity to direct a $35,000 donation to their charity of choice. The contest is a perfect way to get your daily dose of greens and serve up some serious green to a charitable cause.
