Roasted Broccoli & Red Grape Salad

In the pursuit of cleaning out my crisper drawers, I made this delicious side dish last night...think it is a keeper!!!  Roasting the red grapes with the broccoli draws out their natural sugars - YUM!  Try this and you won't be disappointed!!
6 cups broccoli florets
2 cups seedless red grapes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp each salt and black pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup low-fat, low sodium mayonnaise
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled (optional)
  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Toss broccoli and grapes with olive oil, salt and pepper and place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Roast for 10 minutes, toss and roast for 10 minutes more.
  • Remove from oven and place into a medium sized bowl.  Toss with chopped onion.
  • Whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice and sugar.  Drizzle over broccoli mixture and toss to coat.
  • Garnish salad with crumbled bacon, if using.
  • ENJOY!
