Fresh broccoli salad
This broccoli salad is ready in no time. With a little chopping and no cooking involved you will have this refreshing side dish in a jiffy. Enjoy!
Servings 6 servings
- 2 heads broccoli (organic)
- 2 small red onions
- 70 g sunflower seeds raw
- 50 g raisins
- 80 g bacon (crispy) slightly crushed/chopped
- 250 g creme fraiche
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp salad cream
- 2 tbsp cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp agave syrup or honey, or 1 tsp sugar
- salt to taste
- 1 pinch pepper
Wash the broccoli, shake well to get rid of any water. Prepare a bowl and cut broccoli into small florets.
Chop the onions finely and add to a bowl together with the bacon all broken/chopped into small pieces, the sunflower seeds and the raisins.
In a separate smaller bowl, put the creme fraîche, vinegar, salt, pepper, agave syrup/honey/sugar, mayonnaise and the salad creme. Mix all to incorporate and pour over the broccoli.
Mix everything together very well and serve. It is best to make this slightly in advance so that the broccoli gets in all those lovely flavours. It lasts for 2-3 days in the fridge.
Creme fraîche can be replaced by buttermilk or yoghurt which can be full fat, fat-free (if you really insist) or in between. I don’t recommend fat-free really since the salad it’s healthy enough to afford a 3-5-18 or 20% fat yoghurt????
Enjoy it, folks! It's delish!
