Broccoli Peanut Raisin Salad

This recipe isn't a new creation. This recipe has been around. It's great for picnics, cookouts (as long as you don't leave it out too long) or for everyday. It's cool, crisp and fresh with a little sweetness and a little tang. And it has passed the three-year-old's approval.

Broccoli Peanut Raisin Salad (adapted from my mom's recipe)

5 cups raw broccoli florets, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup roasted peanuts (salted is fine)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
3 tbsp. vinegar

Place broccoli florets and raisins into a medium-sized bowl. In a smaller bowl, combine mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar. Pour over broccoli and raisins and combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve (you can easily make it a day ahead). Add peanuts and stir them in just before serving. Pin It

  1. I see a theme... you like peanuts/butter... :)
    We love this recipe, except we use red onion chopped and no peanuts. I love this recipe, especially since the broccoli is raw and it tastes soo good!
    I'm working on using more recipe's and grocery lists lately, so as a yummy treat I'm going to try the icecream sandwich cake.
    Thanks for posting a message, we are loving the books, just loving it, it seems so natural! Have a great day- I'm also going to get produce(fresh from farmer) to make up my eggplant/tomato soup for freezing. I'll try to post recipe before no one has any more tomatoes- LL


Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
