Lets face it, salads can be boring and I used to find myself cutting up a tomato to toss over romaine lettuce night after night until I came up with a few recipes that could be made ahead and would be deliciously ready to eat out of the fridge. I try to stay on the healthy side of things here and so prefer to use honey or blue agave nectar for the candied walnuts. I imagine the dressing for this recipe would surely work with mayo also, but these hips don’t lie & I just don’t need all these calories funneled into them thanks to miracle whip. The addition of currants, walnuts and broccoli make for an excellent mix of anti-oxidant super food, protein and vitamin A + C. (Feel free to substitute any other nut like cashew) The most sinful part of this dish which incidentally makes it all the more flavorful is crumbled bacon. I find it much easier to buy a package of readily crumbled bacon but fresh bacon is always a plus. This healthy and yummy salad keeps in the fridge for about 5 or 6 days (perfect to take to work).
