BROCCOLI SALAD

Broccoli salad is incredibly easy to make. It's healthy, loaded with flavor and topped with a creamy mayonnaise yogurt dressing. Watch the video above to see how quickly it comes together!

INGREDIENTS

Broccoli Salad
  1. 1 broccoli head, approx 5 cups of florets
  2. 8 slices bacon
  3. 1/3 cup red onion, diced
  4. 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  5. 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  6. 1/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled
Broccoli Salad Dressing
  1. 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  2. 1/4 cup plain yogurt
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Add the bacon slices to a parchment lined baking tray and cook for 15 minutes or until crispy. Remove the bacon from the oven and transfer to a paper towel to dry and cool.
  2. While the bacon is cooking, slice off all the broccoli florets and make sure they're in bite-sized pieces. Add them to a large mixing bowl along with the red onion, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds and goat cheese.
  3. To make the dressing, add the mayonnaise and yogurt to a small bowl and stir together. Add the dressing to the mixing bowl and stir until everything is well combined.
TIPS
  1. Make sure you've sliced the broccoli florets into small, bite-sized pieces. It makes it far easier to eat that way.
  2. If you're wondering what to do with the broccoli stem, spiralize it! Yes, you can totally spiralize a broccoli stem, just as you would a zucchini. It's delicious! And while I don't show you how to spiralize a broccoli stem on my Spiralizer Beginner's Guide video, you can still get a little inspiration from the video.
  3. If you've never cooked bacon in the oven before, make sure to read my recipe post and watch my video. Whenever I'm cooking a whole package of bacon it's definitely my favorite method.
  4. I also have recipes for homemade mayonnaise and homemade yogurt, but of course, you can buy these from the store as well.
