"Pre-cooked bacon slices make this summer salad very easy to prepare. Toss with broccoli, pecans, raisins, onion, and creamy slaw dressing. It's a real crowd pleaser!"

Bob Evans® Express® Fully Cooked Bacon, prepared according to package
red onion, diced
1 1/2 cups
cole slaw dressing
Be careful to use a bottled slaw dressing you are familiar with or just make your own with mayo, vinegar and sugar. I used a bottled slaw dressing and it made the salad taste yucky.
Very, very yummy!! I don't know how much 2.1 ounces of bacon is, because we always just put about 8 slices of bacon in, but this is a very yummy salad. It needs to be eaten quickly though, and isn't as good the next day because the bacon starts to absorb the dressing and gets mushy. Cooking the bacon until crispy, without being burnt, is definitely the best - it adds to the crunch of the salad, and takes a bit longer to mushify. (Is that a word?) ;)
This is a delicious recipe. I made it for a church luncheon so I doubled it. I didn't put as many raisins as it called for and used Marie's Cole Slaw dressing. I didn't do this but it might be nice with some fancy shredded cheddar cheese in it. This will be the recipe I make for all pot lucks and parties from now on.
I love this recipe. For even quicker preparation,use Hormel Real Bacon Pieces from a jar, sorry Bob Evans. I use a "coleslaw kit" and throw in the shredded cabbage and use the coleslaw dressing from the kit. This stretches the recipe for my book club. I always bring home an empty bowl.
I love this dish! My mom has made it many times for me. The only difference in the way we make it is we make our own slaw dressing, use peanuts instead of pecans, packaged real bacon bits (they don't seem to get soggy by the next day), and add some cauliflower. Everything else is the same as the recipe and it is WONDERFUL. Even my kids love this!
We served this when we had American, Irish and Thai people for dinner. It got rave reviews from everybody!! 5 stars to this one and everyone should try it!!
Substituted veganaise with balsamic vinegar and a bit of sugar, for slaw dressing, omitted the bacon, substituted roasted chopped walnuts for pecans. Very good!
This salad is always a favorite with my family. I use mayonaise instead of cole-slaw dressing.
