Broccoli Salad 3

5 from 1 reviews

Easy broccoli salad with 8 simple ingredients.


  • 6 cups fresh broccoli florets (chop larger florets into smaller pieces)
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped finely
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup yogurt or mayonnaise (homemade version here)
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 10 slices bacon (you decide on the nitrates, approx 1/2 lb pre-cooking weight)


  1. Cook bacon, crumble and set aside.
  2. Combine broccoli, onion and raisins in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, wisk vinegar, sugar and yogurt/mayonnaise. Add dressing to broccoli and combine well. Refrigerate 2-24 hours.
  3. Add sunflower seeds and bacon before serving.


You could scale this back and make it for your own dinner tonight, or leave it as is to feed a large crowd.  It does need to be refrigerated for at least two hours and could go for up to 24.
