Fresh Broccoli Salad

Broccoli salad is a recent discovery of love in my life. It's fresh, sweet, tangy and perfect! If you can chop broccoli then you can make and believe me, once you do, you'll be wanting to make it everyday!

2 bunches of broccoli crowns ~ diced very small
1/2 cup of Veganaise (also Miracle Whip or Mayonaise could be used)
3 tsp of apple cider vinegar
2 TBSP of sugar
1/4 of an a sweet onion~ grated into a paste (or a diced red onion)
1/4 tsp salt
dash of pepper and garlic powder
1 tsp of olive oil
1/3 cup of raisins or dried cranberries
1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
1/3 cup of chopped bacon or real bacon bits
1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

Whisk the Veganaise, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Grate the onion into the sauce to give it it's flavor without the chunks of onion in the salad. (You can dice it up very small and toss it in if preferred) Taste to adjust seasoning to your liking. Pour over broccoli and add the final 3 ingredients. Stir to combine. Refigerate before serving. SO, so good!

  1. This is also really good with a little hard boiled egg and shredded cheddar cheese. I will have to try the onion in the sauce the way you did it, sounds yummy!
