Loaded Broccoli Salad

Broccoli salad is a big hit around here. It is a great way to get the children to eat veggies. With the cheddar and bacon there is a bit of protein in there as well. This recipe has evolved a bit over time, but I think we finally have it down.

Loaded Broccoli Salad

Loaded Broccoli Salad

  • 3 pounds of broccoli florets, trimmed into bite-sized pieces*
  • 1 large sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 24 ounces of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 3/4-1 cup of raisins (I like golden raisins) or dried cranberries
  • 10-12 ounces sharp cheddar, shredded
  • 1/2 cup flax seed
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, hauled
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 8 tablespoons organic sugar (I use turbinado sugar)

Mix mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, and sugar together until sugar is dissolved.

Mix with remaining ingredients in a large bowl. I usually make this up the night before and it is great when it sets overnight.

*I usually trim the stem bits in as well, just in small bits.
