Broccoli and bacon salad
Insalata di broccoli e pancetta
Italians are not unfamiliar with vegetables in a white dressing like the so-called Russian salad, but even in Puglia where most people like broccoli this classic broccoli and bacon salad causes suspicion. I think it’s just because they haven’t tried it before, as it is very nice when all the salt, savoury and sweet flavours blend together. Serve the broccoli and bacon salad with meat as a filling sidedish and use any leftovers as antipasto the following day.
