Broccoli Salad

  • 1 broccoli-head (approx 5 cups of florets)
  • 8 slices bacon
  • ½ cup dried-cranberries
  • cup red-onion, diced
  • ¼ cup goat-cheese, crumbled
  • ½ cup sunflower-seeds

Broccoli Salad Dressing

  • ¼ cup plain-yogurt
  • ½ cup mayonnaise


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Add the bacon-slices to a parchment-lined baking-tray & cook about 15minutes or till crispy. Remove the bacon in the oven & transfer to a paper-towel to cool and dry.
  • While the bacon is cooking, slice all of the broccoli-florets and be certain they are in bite-sized pieces. Add them into a large mixing-bowl together with the red-onion, dried-cranberries, sunflower-seeds and goat-cheese.
  • To make the dressing, add the carrot and yogurt into a small bowl and stir together. Add the dressing into the mixing bowl and stir until all is well blended.


Ensure that you've chopped the broccoli florets into small, bite-sized pieces. It makes it much easier to eat like that.
If you are wondering what to do with all the broccoli-stem, then spiralizer it! Yes, you may totally spiralize a broccoli-stem, just as you would a zucchini. It is delicious!
