Family Favorite Broccoli Salad

With Thanksgiving coming up you may be looking for a side dish that'll beat all the other dishes your family brings... ;)

If that's your goal, here you go! This broccoli salad is the bomb. It's got some sweet & tart flavor with the cranberries - it's got bacon, which is always a perfect addition - and it's got saltiness with the sunflower seeds.

Only problem, is it's addictive so be sure to make the WHOLE recipe and don't half it because it'll be gone in no time!


  • 8 cups raw broccoli florets, cut into small and even pieces

  • 1/2 cup diced red onions

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, dried cherries are great too!

  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, or pine nuts

  • 1/2 cup finely diced bacon, cooked


  • 1 cup light mayonnaise

  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • In a large bowl, combine the broccoli florets, red onions, cranberries, sunflower seeds, and bacon and toss until evenly distributed.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients and pour over broccoli mixture.

  • Toss lightly until the broccoli is evenly coated.

  • Serve immediately, garnished with extra onions, sunflower seeds, cranberries and bacon bits if desired.
