Healthy Broccoli Salad Recipe
You can never go wrong with this healthy broccoli salad recipe on a warm day! Florets are blanched briefly to soften a bit while still preserving their crisp and fresh taste. Tossed with bacon, your favorite nuts and drizzled with dressing, this salad is simply irresistible!
Servings: 4 servings
- 8 oz broccoli
- 2 oz red onion diced
- 1 oz baked bacon crumbled
- 1 oz dried cranberries
- 1 oz sliced almond
- 1 oz cashew
- 1 oz walnuts
- 4 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- 4 tsp lemon juice
- 1/8 tsp salt
Bring a pot of water to the boil. While you wait, cut the broccoli into florets. Add them into the boiling water and cook for 1 minute.
Remove and immediately soak the broccoli florets in the ice water until cool. Drain them well.
In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, sugar, and lemon juice. Stir well until smooth.
In a large bowl, add broccoli florets, red onion, bacon, raisins, and all the nuts. Drizzle the dressing over the broccoli combination and toss all the ingredients.
Let the salad cool (I like to let it sit in the fridge for an hour but this is not necessary) and serve.
