Sweet and Sour Broccoli Salad is a classic I'd never get tired of, and this favorite broccoli salad with bacon, cheese, and pecans is low-carb, gluten-free, and kid-friendly!
I wonder sometimes why certain recipes become such classics that people make them over and over, and this Sweet and Sour Broccoli salad is definitely one of those recipes everyone loves. I've been making this salad (and improving the recipe) for more than ten years now, and I think this latest version is the best one yet!
Through the years I experimented with different sweeteners, used more or less bacon, switched raisins for pecans, and even tried a version where the broccoli was finely chopped (which was really good, if you prefer that variation.) These days I make the yummy mayo-based dressing for this salad with mostly Granulated Stevia
and just a little brown sugar for great flavor and a dressing that's still really low in carbs.
Of course you can use any sweetener of your choice, and feel free to experiment with other variations to the recipe as well. No matter how you change this up, I don't think there can ever be a bad version of this salad!Click to continue reading
