Broccoli & Bacon Salad

Hello beautiful people! 

Have you ever had a time that you have to bring something to a potluck and have no idea what to bring?! So you jump on Pinterest for a few minutes or hour 🤨 get all these elaborate, awesome ideas and then can’t decide which one to do! I think that I want to do something fancy and impress everyone, but then again I don’t have much time, money or much in the house for that matter.

So this salad recipe is pretty simple (and looks fancy) and is a surprising favorite to many! And I think it is even pretty healthy too 🤔

I first tried it at a work potluck and was just trying it to be “polite” to the person who brought it and ended up loving it!

Now I bring it often and it is pretty simple to throw together! Of course, I did some tweaks to the recipe to make it even easier.



  1. 3 tsp sugar
  2. 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
  3. 2 tbsp. white vinegar
  4. 3-4 cups of Broccoli
    1. I use steamed broccoli I can put in the microwave and then quickly chop it up.
  5. 4-5 pieces of cooked bacon
    1. I cook bacon pretty often so I usually have some in the fridge. However, if I don’t I have used bacon bits before too (1/2 cup).
  6. 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  7. 1/2 cup of raisins
  8. 1/2 cup of red onion (finely chopped)
  • Mix the sugar, mayo and vinegar, together with a wisk.
  • In a separate bowl, mix everything else.
  • Take the sugar mix and pour over the broccoli mixture.
  • Chill in refrigerator.

Bring to your next potluck Or add as a side to lunch or dinner.

Enjoy friends 😊
