The best of the best combinations: if you don’t know it yet, take a look:
BROCCOLI-RED ONION-BACON-CHEDDAR CHEESE-RAISINS-MAYONNAISE
I have showed already lots of variations of this salad. Broccoli salad from Mr Food, Neelys broccoli salad, Souplantation broccoli salad from Cinnamon Spice & Everything nice, Pioneer Woman broccoli salad, Skinny broccoli salad from Womanista (or Skinny Mom) and many other. They all contain these or some of these ingredients. If you are a big fan of broccoli, like me, there is no way you haven’t tried at least two of the recipes. It would be just unrespectable to you as a broccoli lover. 🙂
While I was researching all kinds of broccoli salad, I came to a lady with a nickname Yumi (very promising!) and her recipe blog on Hunterette. I really liked her version of the famous broccoli bacon mayonnaise salad.
Which is the main cool thing about the Souplantation broccoli salad recipe from Yumi?
The very, very best part of her salad is the fact it is super simple and easy to make. Raw broccoli, cup of raisins, cup of cooked bacon, cup of cashews, cup of red onion and you are ready. No shredded cheese, no combinations of different types of cheese, no complicated dressing. You just add some sugar and vinegar to the mayonnaise and whisk everything together. You see, there is no need to read the recipe or watch a video. I have just explained you the whole process in two sentences. That is what I liked about the Souplantation broccoli salad recipe by Yumi.
You could of course upgrade the salad by adding more ingredients. It all depends on how much time you have, are you in the mood for cooking and preparing stuff, do you enjoy mixing foods and experimenting in the kitchen etc. I will just list the main ingredients you could add to this Souplantation broccoli salad recipe:
- You could add yogurt to the mayonnaise.
- You could whisk the mayonnaise with sour cream.
- You could add some Cheddar cheese to the broccoli salad.
- You could sprinkle baked or raw sunflower seeds on top.
