Ingredients

  • 1 (16 oz) package rotini pasta
  • 1 pound fresh broccoli, chopped (stems removed)
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Prepare pasta according to package directions
  • Chop broccoli, onion and bacon.
  • In a bowl, mix together mayonnaise, red wine vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper.
  • Once pasta has been cooked and drained well, put it in a large bowl.
  • Pour in mayonnaise mixture, chopped broccoli and diced onion (don’t add the bacon in yet, you want to add that in right before serving so it stays crunchy).
  • Stir well.
  • Cover bowl and put in the fridge to chill for at least 3 hours.
  • Before serving, add crumbled bacon to salad and then give it all a good stir and then serve.

Notes

Some additional add-ins that would be delicious in this are some halved red grapes (1 1/2 cups) and chopped pecans (1 cup). Before serving, add crumbled bacon to salad and then give it all a good stir and then serve.
