Broccoli Strawberry Salad

Broccoli Strawberry Salad is sensational. This healthy and tasty recipe includes sliced almonds, matchsticks carrots, celery, red onion, grapes, sunflower seed kernels and nitrate-free, uncured bacon, along with strawberries. I use a homemade three-ingredient dressing of Greek yogurt, honey and apple cider vinegar. It’s quick and easy to prepare and can be served with absolutely anything as an excellent side dish.

I have to admit to loving Broccoli salad recipes. I have one with peaches, one with pomegranates and pears, one with cauliflower, one with apples, and my original healthy version. They are each terrific in their own way. I decided I wanted to try one with strawberries and see how it turned out.

It got rave reviews when I served it for our Friday night care group about a month ago. It’s filled with fruit, seeds and nuts plus it has a healthy bacon and dressing so it’s one of those salads I can indulge in and not feel deprived!

All of these ingredients are available year round these days, making it the perfect salad for holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter. And, of course, you can serve it anytime during the summer when you’re having backyard BBQs, attending family reunions or potlucks. I would recommend adding the dressing just before serving to keep the veggies and fruit crisp.

I remember the first time I ever sampled a bite of broccoli salad back in the early 1990s. It was so succulent and amazing I knew that it was one of those salads I would want to make frequently. One of the things Louise Bush did with that original recipe was to use half mayo and half yogurt to cut down on the calories. Since then, I almost always make the salad dressing with all Greek yogurt. But it works wonderfully either way. If you need a “knock-their-socks-off” salad for the holidays, I recommend bringing this one! Enjoy.

    If I can’t easily print a recipe I’m not likely to save it or make it. I don’t see a way to print your recipes but they look great
