Broccoli Salad

I got a big bag of broccoli from Costco for this week's vegetables.  I can't just have the same regular, plain broccoli all week.  I have to make at least one different style of broccoli.  A google search returned a broccoli salad recipe that was kinda like a cole slaw.  I didn't have all the ingredients, but I pivoted and used what I had on hand.

Here is the link to the original recipe: Thanks for the idea,!

Here is my variation of it.  I roasted the broccoli instead of having it raw, used pumpkin seeds instead of sunflower, used a shallot instead of red onion, and omitted the salt.

  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • splash of olive oil
  • 1-1/2 slices bacon, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 big shallot, chopped
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • sprinkle of ground pepper 
  1. Splash some olive oil on the broccoli florets and air fry at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Cook bacon until crispy.  Cut into small pieces. (I cut it with scissors and let it land directly on the broccoli.
  3. Chop shallots.
  4. Combine shallots with all remaining ingredients to create dressing. Mix well.
  5. Add dressing to broccoli and bacon and mix well.
  6. Enjoy!
