How to make broccoli salad with raisins and bacon

Dice the bacon slices and cook in in a pan on medium heat until they have browned and gone crispy. Discard the bacon grease and leave the bacon bits to slightly cool for a minute.

Finely chop the florets of a medium broccoli. Raw broccoli can be a bit tough, but if the pieces are small, it actually tastes really nice. Then, thinly slice the radishes.

Add all the ingredients to a salad bowl, and stir to combine. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
