I made this salad Christmas Eve to go with our ‘tourtieres’. It was a big hit! give it a try, it’s easy, you can make it ahead of time and so very tasty! Ingredients:

  • 2-3 crowns of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (raisins or dried cherries are an option too)
  • 1 cup bacon bits
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds

Dressing:

  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp. sugar, stevia or honey

Directions:

  1. Cut your broccoli into bite-sized florets. Dip them into very hot water to just brighten them up a bit, then dip into ice cold water to crisp them up. Drain well.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix the dressing then add all the ingredients together. Chill in fridge.
  3. Can be made up several hours ahead of time and in fact leftovers are great the next day too!
  4. enjoy!
  5. ** To make vegetarian style, omit the bacon bits and add pumpkin seeds or slivered almonds.
