The Best Broccoli Salad Recipe for Picnics

I love broccoli salad with vinegar. I had never even heard of it until a few years ago, while at the deli counter. On the premade salad side, there was a broccoli dish that looked fantastic. After buying it the first time, I was hooked. The problem is, if you have ever bought anything in at section, it is expensive! You get this little tiny container and it comes with a Big price tag. So I decided, I can find a recipe and make that myself.

Amish Broccoli Salad Recipe

For the dressing:

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup sugar Weight Watchers use Stevia or Slenda equivalent ( stevia is about 1 teaspoon)
  • 2 tablespoon white vinegar You can also use red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar. Each gives its own unique taste.
  • 1 cup mayonnaise Weight Watchers use Greek yogurt

In the salad:

  • 1 head broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries Weight Watchers use 1/4 cup
  • 1/4- 1/2 cup chopped onion, depending on how much raw onion you prefer. I use white onion but you can easily use red onion.
  • 8 slices cooked bacon, chopped Weight Watchers use turkey bacon
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  1. To make the dressing for they salad, mix sugar, mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add in the broccoli. Add in the onions, raisins, sunflower seeds and the bacon.
    Pour the dressing over the broccoli mixture and mix.

While the salad is ready immediately or an hour before serving, it always tastes better when it is made ahead and sit in the refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight. Be sure to use a bowl with a lid. It makes it easier to store, it keeps it fresher longer and then you can shake the broccoli salad to get the dressing over everything before serving. I love this bowl set.
