Broccoli Bacon Salad

So many good side dishes are carb heavy; am I right? I love when there’s a great side dish that comes along that is veggie heavy instead. Hello Broccoli Bacon Salad! Raw broccoli, delicious bacon, and a sweet, creamy dressing are the staple flavors of this perfect summer side salad. I even throw in some sunflower seeds and raisins for added texture. If this doesn’t scream barbecue side I don’t know what does.

Cubed cucumbers with partial skin on, wedged tomatoes and sliced red onion glisten in a vinaigrette dressing mixed with crumbled feta cheese on a grey stone plate.
