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.
