Are you having trouble feeding your kids with healthy meals? This will solve your dilemma for sure! I give you this Broccoli Salad with Bacon and Cheese! My kids could not get enough of this incredible dish. They even tell me to cook this for them. If you want, you can add Cauliflower together with the broccoli for a healthier dish. Sprinkle green onions and parsley on top as well. You are so in for a treat. Enjoy!
1 head broccoli, or more to taste
1 red onion, chopped
1 cup golden raisins

Step 7: Stir the bowl until all the ingredients are well coated.

You can use golden Thompson raisins instead of black raisins.
You can also use Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise.
Cut or shredded Cheddar cheese works either way for this recipe.
