Servings: 6 Prep 20 mins Cook 4 mins Microwave 7 mins


  • 2/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large head broccoli (1-1/2 pounds), cut into florets or 6 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 package turkey breast cutlets, about 3/4 to 1 pound
  • 1 6 ounce package turkey bacon
  • 1/2 small red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins

Make It

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, red wine vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Set aside.

2. Heat a medium-size pot of water to boiling and a large skillet of water to simmering. Add broccoli to boiling water and cook 3 minutes, until tender but still crisp. Drain. Meanwhile, add turkey to skillet of simmering water and poach for 3 to 4 minutes or until cooked through. Remove to a cutting board and cool.

3. While broccoli and turkey cool, stack bacon slices on a paper-towel-lined plate (about 5 slices per layer; paper towels between each layer). Microwave on HIGH for 7 minutes, checking and removing any crisp slices after 5 minutes. Cool slightly, then crumble.

4. Cut turkey into bite-size pieces, then transfer to a large bowl. Add broccoli, bacon, red onion and raisins. Toss with mayonnaise mixture until combined. Serve or refrigerate until serving.
