Broccoli & Grape Salad

This was an easy and quick dish I made because we had loads of grapes that were about to go bad. It was a situation where I purchased grapes not knowing my husband had already purchased grapes, then he purchased some again not realizing I had already done so. We couldn’t eat them fast enough!

Something I want to work better at this year is not wasting food and try my hardest to center recipes and meals around foods before they reach their expiration.

As all meals I post on here due to my particular allergies, this is dairy, gluten, and tomato free.

*technically I am not supposed to eat fruit either, but I’ve learned what I can tolerate and in what amount*

Broccoli & Grape Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag of purple grapes -each one cut in half (amount really depending on how much you love grapes. To me, the more the better!)
  • 2 heads of fresh broccoli, florets only
  • 1/3 cup of real bacon bits (or more if you really like bacon. Up to you!)
  • 1/2 of a red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup silvered almonds

*You can make this vegetarian by purchasing Veggie Bacon Bits

Dressing

  • 1 cup lite mayo
  • 1 TBsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup organic brown sugar

Instructions:

  1. Combine all the fruit and veggies ingredients in a large bowl
  2. Prepare the dressing in a separate bowl and whisk together
  3. Pour the dressing into the fruit and veggie bowl and stir until everything is combined
  4. Chill for several hours.

Really simple. I was very glad that all of our grapes didn’t go to waste. I packed this in my lunch for the entire week, and even my very picky-eater son enjoyed a few bites. It’s a step in the right direction for the kid who claims all veggies are evil. πŸ˜‰
