This is my families traditional take on the classic broccoli salad. The perfect easy side dish to throw together for a pot luck!


  • 2 large head of broccoli, chopped into small pieces (about 7 cups)
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 8 slices of thick bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts (may also substitute sunflower seeds)
  • 3/4 cup mayo
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  1. Add chopped broccoli, red onions, bacon, cranberries and peanuts to a large bowl. Toss to combine.
  2. In a small bowl add mayo, yogurt, sugar, salt, pepper and apple cider vinegar. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Add the dressing to the broccoli mix and stir until everything is fully coated.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours before serving.
