Broccoli Salad

Picture of Broccoli Salad in a Bowl

This recipe is versatile in that if you don't have an ingredient on hand, sub it with something else you like...vegetables make great salads :) Also, I don't measure when I make this, I just eye the amount that seems right for me.  Depending on the amount you want to make, you can likely do the same.  

Here's the list of ingredients I usually use to make a fairly large bowl of broccoli salad- large enough to feed as a main dish with a side of protein for a family of 5 or 6.

  • Cleaned broccoli florets, broken into small bite-sized pieces (about 1 large bunch)
  • 1 bag of broccoli slaw
  • 3 boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1/2 onion grated
  • generous sprinkle of real bacon bits
  • 1 small zucchini or yellow summer squash, chopped (optional)
  • homemade olive oil mayonnaise (about 1/3 cup)
  • sprinkle of apple cider vinegar (about 1 TBSP)
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

Mix together in large bowl and serve with a side of grilled chicken breasts or salmon as a complete meal.
