Harvest Recipe: Tangy and Sweet Broccoli Salad

Before I get started with my recipe...I have a HUGE project we're working on to promote GMO Free awareness.  
Please like our NEW page GMO Free Worldwide.  If you are interested in joining us please read my post Genetic Roulette for more details.

What do you do with so much Broccoli?  I can think of about 10 recipes off the top of my head for freshly harvested Broccoli and onions.  Got Bacon?  This recipe uses broccoli AND bacon!

Tangy and Sweet Broccoli Salad

3/4 pound bacon
2 heads broccoli, cut into florets
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup mayonnaise (I used 1/2 cup reduced fat)
you can also use nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 cup white sugar (I used 1/4 cup)
1/2 cup vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar)
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate; crumble bacon.

Place broccoli, onion, raisins, and bacon in a large bowl.
Stir mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar together in a bowl; pour dressing over broccoli mixture and toss to coat. Season with salt and black pepper.
