Broccoli Salad with Bacon


5-6 cups broccoli florets¹ 1 lb, this was about 2 1/2 heads of broccoli for me (450g)

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese thicker, not finely shredded (115g)

2/3 cup dried cranberries (85g)

1/2 cup crumbled bacon² (60g)

1/2 cup salted sunflower seeds (60g)

1/3 cup red onion diced into small pieces (50g)


3/4 cup mayo I use olive oil mayo (175g)

1/4 cup sour cream³ (70g)

1 1/2 Tablespoon white wine vinegar⁴

3 Tablespoons sugar (40g)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper


Combine broccoli florets, cheddar cheese, dried cranberries, bacon, sunflower seeds, and onion in a large bowl.

In a separate, small bowl, whisk together mayo, sour cream, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper until smooth and well-combined.

Pour dressing over broccoli combination and toss or stir well.

Broccoli salad may be served immediately, but for best flavor refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. Make sure to toss broccoli salad thoroughly again before serving.

Keep refrigerated if not consuming right away.
