  • chopping board
  • knife
  • glass bowl
  • wooden spoon


  • 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!
