Paula Deen's Broccoli Salad

Broccoli was super fresh in the grocery store, and on sale! I bought a ton of it and roasted a whole pan full to have with pasta. I also made Paula Deen's Broccoli Salad which calls for uncooked broccoli. I usually don't like raw broccoli but this recipe had such high ratings that I wanted to try it.

I had to leave out the tomatoes since I didn't have any, and I used veggie bacon.

Dave really like the salad and I thought it was okay. Not bad, but not one of my favorite things. I think it would be better if the broccoli was lightly steamed. The raw broccoli is a bit much for me.

You can find the broccoli salad recipe here:


  1. I love this salad, but you're right, steaming the broccoli would make it better.

  2. I absolutely love broccoli and pasta together! I'm not a big fan of raw broccoli, but I like salads like that one after they sit overnight and the broccoli softens up a bit.
