Cook bacon according to package instructions, drain off extra grease, and dice or crumble. Allow the bacon to cool.
Add the bacon along with broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, red onion, apple, and raisins to a large bowl.
Make the dressing- In a small bowl, mash the avocados first then add the other sauce ingredients.
Add the dressing to the salad and stir until well combined. Serve.
-Cook the bacon by dicing it first, then add it to a frying pan on medium for about 10-12 minutes until it was crispy. -If you’re making this for a potluck or BBQ or just want to make it ahead of time in general: You can make most of it ahead of time but wait to add the apples and make the sauce, since avocados and apples brown pretty quickly-Make sure the avocados are ripe so they are easy to mash when you make the dressing. -Make sure everything is bite-sized so the dressing coats the salad evenly.
