Ingredients

  • 10 cup broccoli chopped small
  • 1 8 ounce Jones Dairy Farm Sugar Free Bacon
  • 1 bell pepper orange
  • 1 cup red grapes halved
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup red onion chopped finely

Lemon Tahini Dressing

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Chop broccoli in small pieces, and add to a colander. Run hot water (or boiling from a kettle) over broccoli to soften. Allow to drain well.
  • Prepare salad dressing by adding all ingredients to a jar, and shaking well. 
  • Once the broccoli has drained well, add the broccoli to a large serving bowl, and toss with dressing. Refrigerate the dressed broccoli until ready to serve the salad.
  • Slice bacon in small pieces, and cook to package directions. Drain on paper towels.
  • When ready to serve, top the salad with all ingredients, and toss.
  • If preparing this salad in advance, top the dressed broccoli with bell peppers and grapes. Store bacon, red onion, and pecans separately and add to the salad right before serving.
