Broccoli Salad

Cook Time: 20
Servings: 4-5


2 cups of broccoli florets
broccoli stems (optional)
1/2 lb bacon
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup red onion diced

For dressing:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 table spoon lemon juice
1/2 tea spoon horseradish
1 table spoon honey

Every time I make this salad for some gathering, people ask me for the recipe.
You can make it a part of your diet.
Some ingredients can be substituted, like raisins can be replaced with cranberry and sunflower seed with crushed walnuts. You may also try to use coleslaw dressing.
To make crumbled bacon: Dice bacon and cook it to brown in lightly oiled skillet, (otherwise bacon will stick to the bottom of skillet).

Place bacon on the paper towel to drain excess of fat.
Can be replaced with crumbled bacon bought at Supermarket.

Cut broccoli florets to the bite size and shred the stems. Dice the onion.


In the big bowl toss together broccoli, onion, bacon, raisins and sunflower seeds.

In a smaller bowl whisk together mayonnaise, yogurt, lemon juice, horseradish and honey.
Add dressing to the salad and toss to coat.


Enjoy it.
