This is the salad that my husband likes as a snack.  I usually double it for him to munch on at work and after his workouts…


Happy birthday, honey!


Broccoli Salad (serves 4-6 or one husband for a few days…)

5 cups frech broccoli florets

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/3 – 1/2 cup cooked crumbled bacon

2 tablespoons finely minced red onion, optional

salt and pepper to taste

3/4 cup gluten and dairy free mayonaise

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

4 tablespoons sugar (I use baker’s sugar as it dissolves faster)


Combine broccoli florets, raisins, sunflower seeds, crumbled bacon, and chopped onion (if using) in a large serving bowl. In a small separate bowl whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Add dressing to the salad and toss to mix well; chill thoroughly before serving.
