Broccoli Bacon Salad

Blackhawk Tips


Broccoli Bacon Salad

Prepare salad ingredients:

  • 12 cups of broccoli – cut into small chunks and lightly steamed
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 lb. cooked bacon – chopped (See "How to Cook Bacon")
  • 2 lbs. red and green grapes – (if grapes are not in season, use 2 cups craisins or raisins)


Prepare Yogurt Dressing or Mustard-Vinaigrette Dressing (Recipes below)

Yogurt Dressing:

  • 3 cups plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. honey or sugar
  • 1/2 onion-shredded
  • Pinch of salt

Stir together with a wire whisk. This will keep several weeks in the refrigerator.

Mustard-Vinaigrette Dressing:

  • 9 Tbs.  cider vinegar
  • 3 Tbs.  Dijon mustard
  • 1-1/2 Tbs. honey or sugar
  • 3/4 cup canola oil-or other light oil (olive oil is a bit to heavy)

Stir together with a wire whisk.

Add a bit of black pepper and maybe a pinch of sea salt, right before serving.

In a large bowl mix together in order:

  • Broccoli
  • Yogurt Dressing or Mustard-Vinaigrette Dressing
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Bacon
  • Grapes or craisins

Menu idea:

This salad makes a great main dish.  Serve with whole grain bread and fruit.  Leftovers can be served as a side dish the next day.  You can prepare the salad the night before, leaving the sunflower seeds out until ready to serve.
