Broccoli Crunch

1 c. Miracle Whip or gluten-free mayonnaise
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
8 slices cooked and crumbled bacon (or about 8 Tbsp. gluten-free bacon bits)
3/4 c. raisins
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
1/2 c. red onion, finely chopped
1 head broccoli, chopped to small florets

Combine 1st three ingredients in a small bowl (I have omitted the lemon juice if I don't have any, and it's still great.) Combine remaining ingredients in a large salad bowl. Pour dressing over salad, and stir to combine well. Make sure to refrigerate a couple hours before serving to let flavors combine.


This is sometimes served at my Whole Foods' salad bar, but it's pricey and of course there's always risk of cc on a salad bar. It's easy and cheap to make!

This is a good salad. My recipe calls for 1 T. apple cider vinegar (Bragg's), 1 T. honey, 3T. sugar, 1 T. olive oil and 2/3 cup miracle whip. I serve the sunflower kernals on the side b/c I don't care for them unless they are the raw ones. I also thinly slice baby carrots which really add to the salad. A good way to eat fresh broccoli. You can use the same dressing for cole slaw. Funny thing is a never liked onions, broccoli or sunflower kernals until I tried this salad. The blend makes it all taste good together. You can fry the bacon the day before it save time.

I have made a version of this for many years! Even before my dx. I have been thinking about making this with the warmer weather.

Sarah,

I make a similar recipe.

Broccoli florets
mayo
balsamic vinegar
sugar
cooked bacon crumbles
craisans (lots)
chopped onion

And, you're right. It's great for summer dinners and the longer it sits, the better it tastes. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for posting, I get a mild geographical tongue reaction to vinegar when used in salads and its nice to have a recipe version that doesn't contain it. I will probably skip the lemon juice as well since you said its fine without.
Thanks again, sounds perfect for summer :)
