Crispy Broccoli Salad

What did you have for sinner last night? We had juicy steaks with oven roasted potatoes and a crispy broccoli salad. It is easy to make, has a crispy texture and tastes delicious.

Broccoli is one of those vegetables that most people like in one way or the other. Our favorite is this broccoli salad with crispy home made bacon and roasted sun flower seeds. Some other good ideas for broccoli recipes is broccoli with melted cheddar cheese and broccoli soup with chunks of creamy blue cheese (recipes will follow soon).

Ingredients (4 servings)

1 broccoli, bouquets

1 red onion

10 slices bacon

1/8 cup sunflower seeds

1/3 cup sour cream

1 tbsp. mayo (we use Hellmann’s)

2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp. confectioners sugar

 

Parboil the broccoli set a side while prepping the rest of the ingredients or until they reach room temperature.

While waiting for the parboiled broccoli to cool, fry the bacon until crisp and light brown. Transfer to paper towels to soak the remaining fat when finished.

Cut the inions into small cubes and roast the sunflower seeds, until they begin to get a bit of color. Stir to avoid that the seeds get burned.

In a separate bowl whisk together sour cream, mayo, vinegar and confectioners sugar. Whisk until smooth.

Combine broccoli bouquets, onions and dressing in a bowl and combine well. Let rest for at least 5 to 10 minutes (preferably for an hour) in the fridge. Just before serving, add the roasted sun flower seeds and crispy bacon and serve as a side dish for a delicious steak, pork chops or stuffed chicken breast.
