A lot of kids aren’t huge vegetable fans, but a recent poll of middle school students revealed that this generation not only likes broccoli but also prefers it to other more traditionally kid-friendly vegetables. Here is one way to get your kid to eat broccoli.


  • 10 slices bacon, crisply fried and crumbled
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 1 1/2 lbs fresh broccoli florets mixed with broccoli slaw
  • 1 small red onion, chopped fine
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise or less if preferred
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar or the Splenda equivalent
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans - sunflower - almonds - walnuts or the nut of your choice


Step 1

In a small bowl, pour boiling water over raisins; let stand for 10 minutes, drain & cool.

Step 2

Mix broccoli, cooked crisp bacon, raisins, pecans and onion together in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.

Step 3

In a small bowl, blend mayonnaise, sugar/splenda and vinegar.

Step 4

Pour mayonnaise mixture over broccoli mix; mixing well.

Step 5

Cover & chill for 2 hours before serving.

I have a bottle of Light Raspberry & Walnut dressing by Paul Newman that is awesome with this instead of the mayo, sugar & vinegar dressing.
