My Aunt Susan always makes this wonderful broccoli salad and I finally managed to get the recipe from her. This would be great as a side dish or to eat by itself.

Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad


  • 1 head fresh broccoli, tops and stem
  • ½ small red onion, diced
  • ½ cup craisins (you could also use raisins
  • ¼ cup crispy bacon, diced
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • (you can also add chopped pecans if you wish)
  • Dressing:
  • 2 cups Fat Free Miracle Whip
  • 2 tlbs of Skim Milk
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar (you can use splenda or ideal especially if you are diabetic)
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar


  1. Chop broccoli florets and stems into bite-size pieces. You will want to use all but the bottom half of the stalk then discard the tough pieces.
  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  3. Dressing:
  4. Whisk all ingredients together until well blended. Sugar should be dissolved.
  5. Note: When adding dressing to salad, the dressing will liquefy after sitting for a few minutes, so add enough dressing to lightly coat, without drenching the salad.
  6. Refrigerate after making.
