Broccoli Salad


1 x broccoli head

1 x handful raisins

1 x small portion of nuts ( I use cashews )

3-4 rashers of bacon

1/2 red onion, diced ( I use less than this if the kids are eating the salad )

1 small pot of sour cream ( about 100gm )

1 -2 tbsp of mayonaise

1 x lemon


Chop up bacon into smallish pieces and fry until cooked thru.

While the bacon is cooking cut up broccoli heads into small bite size pieces, place in a bowl. I don’t like wasting the stalk so I cut up into bite sized pieces and throw into the salad as well.

Once bacon has cooled slightly place in the bowl with other ingredients.

Add raisins, nuts, diced red onion put to the side.

Mix sour cream, mayonnaise and a squirt of lemon juice together, mix well.

Add the sour cream mixture to the other ingredients and mix well.   Serve chilled if possible


Top tips

I have started adding the cranberry, almond, cashew mix instead of the nuts and raisins.

I don’t always have sour cream in the fridge so have been using greek style yoghurt instead.
