Paleo Broccoli Salad

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb broccoli
  • 3/4 c slivered or chopped almonds
  • 1/2 c raisins ( I used golden raisins)
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1/2 c rendered bacon fat (drippings) or olive oil
  • 1/4 c red wine or apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
Instructions:
  1. Set your oven to 375ºF.
  2. Place the bacon slices on a baking sheet and bake until they’re brown and crispy, about 25 minutes.
  3. While the bacon is cooking, get out a large bowl. For the broccoli, use your hands to remove the leaves on the base of the broccoli. With a knife, trim off the tough outside of the broccoli stem, so you’re left with the tender, pale green center. It shouldn’t be more than a couple millimeters thick–so don’t hack! Chop up the stem into tiny, bite-size pieces and do the same with the florets.
  4. Add the broccoli to the bowl, along with the vinegar, almonds, raisins and salt & pepper.
  5. Once the bacon is done, remove from the oven and let it cool.
  6. Once cooled, chop or use your hands to crumble up the bacon and add it to the bowl. Pour 1/2 c of the rendered fat (drippings) from the bacon directly into the bowl.
  7. Toss everything together! Made this over the weekend and it was pretty yummy, sweet and salty 🙂
