Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad

I don’t know what it is about spring time but as soon as the warm weather hits I start craving broccoli salad.  I go through a phase where I literally eat it at every meal for about 2 weeks.  I’m strange.  I know.  It’s just so yummy!!!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 head broccoli, stems removed and florets cut into pieces
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled (I used Applegate Farms Sunday Bacon)
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise (I used Spectrum Brand Organic Mayonnaise)
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp raw honey or coconut nectar
  • 1/4 cup roasted no salt added sunflower seed kernels
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preparation:

  1. In a small bowl combine mayo, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper.  Mix well and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine broccoli, bacon, onion and raisins.  Gently stir in the mayo dressing.
  3. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds and serve immediately.

It’s best to reserve some of the sunflowers seeds for any leftovers.  The sunflower seeds will lose their crunch by the next day.
