Bacon Broccoli Salad . If ever there was a salad recipe that unexpectedly knocked my socks off, it’s this one – an easy, unassuming, broccoli salad. But don’t let easy fool you, because this salad recipe is loaded with flavor. It’s simultaneously crispy, creamy, sweet and savory. And did I mention bacon is involved?
1 broccoli head, approx 5 cups of florets
8 slices bacon
1/3 cup red onion, diced
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled
Broccoli Salad Dressing
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain yogurt
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
