This has been a summer favorite of ours for the last couple years. I buy the big bags of cleaned, washed broccoli from Costco so all I have to do is cut them a little smaller and mix the ingredients. If we are going to a big barbecue I’ll double or triple this to make the entire 2.5 lb bag. This easy broccoli salad is always one of the first salads to disappear.
Sometimes to change it up a bit instead of the seasonings listed I just use Goya Adobo seasoning to taste. If you try that it cuts the ingredient count down to only 6. I try to keep the ingredients under 10 in most of my recipes. The Goya seasoning is salty so start with a little and add slowly. I’ve over salted dishes a few times with that one blend.
I know there are recipes out there for similar salads already but I wanted to add mine since my kids love it so much. I hope yours will too.
Scroll down slowly for a printable version of this recipe.
Ingredients:6 cups broccoli florets
3/4 cup mayo
1/2 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
2 tsp dill
1 1/4 tsp onion powder
1 1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup crumbled bacon
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
Directions: Mix mayo, sour cream, and the seasonings. If serving right away fold in the bacon and cheddar. (If you are preparing it ahead mix these in right before serving so the bacon doesn’t get mushy and the cheddar doesn’t melt into the dressing). Fold in broccoli.
