Broccoli Grapes & Bacon Salad

A deliciously yummy easy broccoli salad recipe made with red grapes, toasted sweet coconut, sunflower seeds and crumbled bacon.

A delicious salad that is full of flavor and texture. As the broccoli is firm and crunchy with a mild herbaceous and earthy or grassy flavor with just a hint of bitterness.

But that grassy and bitter flavor is tamed by the sweet grapes and toasted coconut.
