Broccoli Slaw with Blueberries and Bacon
 
Just the other day I posted my recipe for Healthy Homemade Avocado Oil Mayonnaise, which I’ve been making like a mad woman lately because I can’t seem to get enough. This recipe for Broccoli Slaw with Blueberries and Bacon was developed to take advantage of that mayonnaise, and the results are amazingly delicious!Broccoli Slaw with Blueberries and Bacon

Naturally, making your own homemade mayonnaise is not critical to make this recipe come out all tasty and wonderful. Your favorite brand of store-bought mayonnaise will work too. It’s just that by using store bought mayo, you won’t have the additional health benefits that the avocado oil mayonnaise provides. But I promise you’ll still love the flavor, freshness, and crunch of this delicious salad.

*Note – as with all mayonnaise-based salads; always keep chilled, before, during, and after serving. Especially in the hot summer months.

I’ve made this salad several times since I first came up the recipe, and each and every time my husband comments on how much he loves it! Must be the bacon! LOL

Whatever the reason, the bacon or blueberries, I love feeling like Wonder Woman in the kitchen!

Of course, a little wine doesn’t hurt, *wink*

But if I’m being totally honest, more time than not, I feel more like this:
