BROCCOLI SALAD | the perfect party salad recipe

– Hi guys and welcome back.
When most of us think of salad recipes
we instantly gravitate
to salads with spinach
and arugula and kale
and other leafy greens.
Well today I’m gonna introduce
you to a new salad recipe
that’s still green but
no leaves are involved
and it may just knock your socks off.
It’s a simple broccoli salad
and it’s creamy, crunchy, sweet
and I really think you’re gonna love it.
So, let me show you how to make it.
The only item that requires any cooking
in this broccoli salad is the bacon.
So we’ll get started by
placing eight slices of bacon
on a parchment-lined baking tray.
Whenever I cook a whole
package of bacon like this,
I always bake it in the oven
rather than use the stove top
as it’s much easier and cleaner.
And I have another video on my channel
that walks you through this step by step.
So we’ll cook the bacon
for about 15 minutes
or until it’s crispy
and while that’s cooking
we’ll get the rest of our salad together.
The bulk of our salad is raw broccoli
and I’m using a large head of broccoli
that equals about five cups
of small broccoli florets
once we chop them off.
Now you may not know this
but you can sprialize
the leftover broccoli stem
and make broccoli noodles.
I don’t show it in my spiralizer video
but it’s definitely possible
and definitely delicious.
So once you have all the florets,
just make sure they’re
in bite sized pieces
and then add them to a bowl.
(upbeat music)
Next, you’ll dice up a red onion
and you want about a third
of a cup of red onion.
Then add that to the bowl as well.
(upbeat music)
At this point our bacon should be done
so remove that from the oven
and transfer the bacon
to a paper towel to dry.
And remember that the bacon
will continue to crisp up
as it dries.
(upbeat music)
The last few ingredients
in our salad include,
a half a cup of sunflower seeds,
a half a cup of dried cranberries
and a quarter cup of goat cheese.
These ingredients are all really flexible
so if you’d like to swap
in a different seed,
nut or dried fruit go for it.
You can even make this
broccoli salad dairy free
and I have a few tips on how
to do that on the blog post.
At this point, the bacon should be cooled
and a little more crunchy so go ahead
and crumble that into the salad.
(upbeat music)
The dressing for this salad is super easy
and is just a combination
of mayonnaise and yogurt
but I always make my mayonnaise at home
because it’s so incredibly easy and fresh.
You guys have likely seen this
on my earlier how to make mayonnaise video
but all you have to do is add one egg,
a half a tablespoon of lemon juice,
a teaspoon of white wine vinegar,
a half a teaspoon of Dijon
mustard, a pinch of salt
and one cup of neutral flavored oil
and I’m using a light olive oil.
Then grab your stick blender
and hold it firmly on the
bottom while you turn it on.
The mayonnaise will start to emulsify
and reach the top and when it does,
you can then move the blender up and down
to make sure that
everything is fully blended.
We’ll combine a half a cup of mayonnaise
with a quarter cup of
yogurt and you guessed it,
I’m using my homemade yogurt
but you could of course use
store-bought yogurt as well.
Then stir that together.
Top it on the salad and
combine everything together
for a delicious broccoli salad.
(upbeat music)
I hope you guys enjoyed this video
and if you did make sure
to give it a thumbs up
and hit that subscribe button below
so you don’t miss my next video.

    Outstanding video clip! Up here at Y&S FOOD! we really like to come across this form of content. We create Travel & Food movies as well, all over the world, and therefore we are continually seeking for inspirations and so ideas. Thank You.

  3. Gina Kohne Posted on June 23, 2018 at 8:26 pm

    Im so happy i found your channel❤️ i watched a few of your videos in a row and they are everything i need. My 3 year old daughter is diagnosed with early onset IBD a year ago and it made us go to a kind of similar journey as yours. Lots of research on food and microbiome. I also experienced burnout symptoms, the way you simplify healthy eating really comes in handy. I cant wait to see the rest of your content and new videos. Thank you from the Netherlands😘🇳🇱

    Now I want you to be my mum so I can taste those yummy meals 😭

  5. Michelle Obie Posted on June 24, 2018 at 7:16 pm

    Thank you so much! I need that

  6. The Momming Diaries Posted on June 25, 2018 at 1:52 pm

    This salad looks great! How long would you say it lasts in the fridge? I'm interested in making this as a dish to keep on hand for snacks/side dishes throughout a week.

  7. Echa Posted on June 26, 2018 at 5:00 pm

    immediate sub! i love this channel cos all the recipes are easy, healthy and looks delicious

  8. Echa Posted on June 26, 2018 at 6:00 pm

    what is the camera you are using? so HD and clear….and do you edit the videos yourself?

    Liked it before the video starts!

  12. Fanaan 123 Posted on June 27, 2018 at 12:32 pm

    Can we eat the broccoli without steaming it?

  13. Samantha McCarthy Posted on June 29, 2018 at 10:18 pm

    I’m annoyed I can’t take a bite of this right now

  14. Air Stream Posted on June 30, 2018 at 5:55 am

    We bring this every year for Thanksgiving and it gives everyone gas !!!!!! It's awful. They still request the dish .

  15. ZC94601 Posted on July 1, 2018 at 7:19 pm

    When I worked at wholefoods, I loved to eat this salad. They call it broccoli crunch salad

  16. Gabi Posted on July 3, 2018 at 7:39 pm

    I just found your channel and am now completely obsessed!!!

  17. ganesha007 Posted on July 6, 2018 at 10:44 am

    Wow, Actually Ive never tried eating raw broccoli before, I would rather go steam them fully

  18. Melissa Carr Posted on July 14, 2018 at 8:26 pm

    My mum's been making this salad for ages! Definitely my favorite 😍

  19. Elba Reinoso Posted on July 15, 2018 at 4:29 pm

    I love 😍😍😍

  20. Debanjana Bhattacharya Posted on July 16, 2018 at 6:18 pm

    Please share a video on how you set up your patio herb garden. I have a teeny tiny balcony where I would love to have an herb garden. Love looking at the lush greenery and also cooking with it.

  21. julie011569 Posted on July 17, 2018 at 12:48 pm

    Delish!! Good morning from Texas!

  22. connie sanet Posted on July 18, 2018 at 8:30 pm

    You make recipes so easy and uncomplicated. Ur technique is clean, ur explanation so right on point. Thank you

  23. Mizzvanity Posted on July 19, 2018 at 3:17 am

    Wait so Mayo is raw eggs??🤮

  24. stephanie phillippa Posted on July 19, 2018 at 12:54 pm

    What can I use instead of bacon in this salad? I love bacon but my partner can’t eat it?

  25. Agatha jay Posted on July 20, 2018 at 6:35 am

    0:7 try only lettuce.

  26. Sara Alharbi Posted on July 31, 2018 at 3:20 am

    I don't like onions😫

  27. raineynight Posted on August 3, 2018 at 2:39 am

    Looks wonderful. I have a hard time eating completely raw broccoli. I think I'll try roasting it first.

  28. Deidra Roberts Posted on August 6, 2018 at 11:07 pm

    So easy! I can't believe it!

  29. Tina Kite Posted on August 12, 2018 at 7:07 pm

    I'm hooked on your YouTube and website! I love watching multiple videos on Sunday as I prep for meals for the week. Today I tried this recipe and substituted ingredients I had on hand. I used pepitas in place of sunflowers, goat feta cheese, shallots in place of red onion and and red peppers for a sweetness since I didn't have dried fruit. I also lightly steamed the broccoli just until bright green and crunchy, as raw is a bit hard for me to digest well. It's delish! Thank you!

  30. Mufarisi Manyuha Posted on August 22, 2018 at 6:44 am

    I love brocolli salad☺☺ I recently made one inspired by this recipe❤loves it. Now I need to try this dressing. Love you channel ☺inspires me to do more #South African subbie

  31. Neil Bigwood Posted on August 30, 2018 at 5:24 pm

    New to your channel, wish I had discovered you sooner, fantastic content, thank u

  32. Salsagirl G Posted on August 31, 2018 at 7:20 pm

    This looks so good, but no issues with eating raw eggs? My mom would not even let us lick her beaters if raw eggs were used

  33. Perry Walton Posted on September 6, 2018 at 1:26 pm

    Yaasss…broccoli is my obsession! Thank you for posting.

  34. kimmielou29 Posted on September 15, 2018 at 7:08 pm

    Another delicious recipe I can't wait to make!

  35. Ariekon_ Hair Posted on September 28, 2018 at 2:59 pm

    I tried this😁 am new to clean eating and I must admit it was hard to eat the brocoli I will steam it up the brocoli next time
    I also failed to get the right consistency for the mayonnaise It came out watery and not thick 😭😭

  36. Anna Kartika Posted on September 29, 2018 at 3:40 pm

    Never thought before I could eat raw broccoli until I've watched your video…

  37. Dani Posted on October 3, 2018 at 2:56 pm

    Thank you so much for all of your recipies! I am so tired of youtube recipies that only look good but wont taste at all!
    I have 5 kids and you are a huge help in feeding my family healthy! We love your style – in every way!
    Hugs from Germany

  38. Maximus X Posted on October 7, 2018 at 5:23 am

    my fav salad but she bores me too slow

  39. Poornima N.Vaidhya Posted on October 22, 2018 at 2:58 am

    Could you please share the vegetarian version of this…

  40. mayapapaya77 Posted on November 9, 2018 at 2:44 am

    Love broccoli salad but I've never made it. Yours looks amazing! Thanks for showing me how to make mayonnaise; i didn't realize it was so easy!!

  41. lucky vanilla Posted on November 26, 2018 at 6:11 pm

    make sure to grab the biggest spoon around, this is incredibly good! 👍👍👍 thanks!

  42. Cat T Posted on December 2, 2018 at 3:57 pm

    I'm not a big cranberry or sunflower seed fan so I would substitute chopped walnuts and just leave any kinds of seeds out. Maybe add celery as I love celery. But the recipe looks good and healthy and I'm definitely going to try it.

  43. Augusta Yarteh Posted on December 21, 2018 at 4:36 pm

    ooh boy that a great preparation; ooh my God. I just don't like to eats raw broccoli and raw onions I prefer to steam them easily before eating them raw. Honestly beside that ,I really love that healthy food preparation. OOh my God it looks so yummy. Wow I like those kind of food.

  44. A C Posted on December 23, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Just a little tip.. whenever i take this dish to church functions, etc.. I put my broccoli in the food processor and pulse it a few times.. It's more enjoyable if you are not trying to bite and chew down the big pieces of broccoli.. Older people love it because they usually have a lot of dental work, etc. 🙂

  45. Beverley Lewis Posted on December 29, 2018 at 12:40 am

    Do you wash the broccoli? I would soak in salt or vinegar.

  46. Jules Geremaia Posted on December 29, 2018 at 2:19 am

    That salad looks AMAZING! I just love your channel!

  47. Biodaemonium Illustration Posted on December 31, 2018 at 5:44 pm

    Can you use a different dressing? I’m currently mayoed out 😆😂

  48. RiseUpBlue Posted on January 7, 2019 at 2:49 am

    This is a really old recipe. I made this 25 years ago 🙂. Great to see it come back.

  49. IamIceQueen7 Posted on January 13, 2019 at 12:52 pm

    i never had raw broccoli !! I'll give this a go
    btw just discovered your channel and subscribed ! i love it already

  50. Carolyn Martin Posted on January 15, 2019 at 1:11 am

    How long does home made mayonnaise last? Love how simple your recipes are and you seem so down to earth as a person. You are very easy to follow and listen to. Love your channel!

  51. Carolyn Martin Posted on January 17, 2019 at 2:54 am

    What brand of bacon did you use?

  52. Chewlie mukbangs Posted on January 18, 2019 at 5:36 am

    This is what I've been looking for!! Thanks!!

  53. JuNkY LaCoUr Posted on January 27, 2019 at 9:51 am

    I did this recipe and it was delicious the only problem is that the raw broccoli it is indigestible ,i was so sick on my stomach , so i recomend to cook a little bit the broccoli. But the recipe was so good.

  54. Songbird For Jesus Posted on February 10, 2019 at 9:06 pm

    Great clean recipe. Here in the South, it's grated cheddar or yellow raisins. This is a step up. Yum.

  55. prayatna sharma Posted on February 21, 2019 at 12:23 pm

    Intake of raw eggs reduces the absorption of Biotin ( a component of vitamin B complex) due the higher presence of avidin found in raw egg. Its raw intake may lead to vit b deficiency.

  56. Wonders Of Crimson Posted on March 10, 2019 at 3:14 pm

    I love this! can I do my mayo in my vitamix?

  57. Ryan's Mom Posted on March 10, 2019 at 9:11 pm

    Wow! You are so amazing!

  58. Marv D'Souza Posted on March 25, 2019 at 3:42 pm

    ive been staying off bacon and other delicious meats for health reasons. I bought some broccoli, zucchini and corn from the farmers market.. thought i'd make a simple salad . I stumbled across this recipe, Broccoli Salad, Sure! #FacePalm 1st ingredient this BROCCOLI SALAD: Bacon. I didn't see it in the title… 🙁 So much for staying off bacon…) But imma still try this one 🙂

  59. Marat Dosov Posted on March 27, 2019 at 2:59 pm

    I'm a little surprised about the mayo recipe. Always, always saw that you gotta pour olive oil little by little. Will it trully come out like this? Scared to try and spoil the large amount of olive oil!

  60. VOLYA_ FOOD Posted on April 3, 2019 at 10:56 am

    With love from Russia

  61. George Blatant Posted on April 7, 2019 at 11:20 pm

    I am always skeptical about homemade mayo… raw egg.?? how to protect yourself from bacterias of salmonella??? That's my throw back from making my own mayo.. What kills the bacterias in egg?

  62. fuse9 Posted on April 8, 2019 at 8:12 am

    Walmart sells this in the deli, no goat cheese in it but it's delicious

  63. Julian Aultman Posted on April 8, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    Is that plain yogurt or vanilla plain yogurt isnt sweet my church has had this 40 yrs served every gathering but of coarse no 1 wants to give recipe..thank you

  64. L Cassandra Joint Posted on April 10, 2019 at 2:08 pm

    I don't have time to do this dressing. What other dressing can I use that will actually taste good???????? Please respond

  65. Yanchik 15 Posted on April 11, 2019 at 12:02 am

    Just find your chanel accidentally .Love & subscribed.❤❤❤👍👍👍

  66. Senior Citizen101 Posted on April 11, 2019 at 12:55 am

    I just found your channel yesterday and have been binge watching your videos since then. I can't wait to make this dish! 🙂

  67. No es mi culpa 🌺 Posted on April 11, 2019 at 10:53 pm

    Very nice! I love broccoli but I never know what to do with it, how to make it. Plus, I didn't know you could eat raw broccoli. Thanks!!!

  68. Clarisse Jones Posted on April 12, 2019 at 12:52 pm

    I am salivating while I watch this. Absolutely scrumpdillouis

  69. Third Culture Wife Posted on April 18, 2019 at 12:03 am

    Yay 😁 so excited for this recipe! I have been eating a lot more broccoli lately and this video is timely because I was running out of ideas on how to not get more with it 😅. Thank you 🙏🏾

  70. Pamela Johnson Posted on May 3, 2019 at 5:27 pm

    A must for the summer 🙏😍❤️❤️

  71. Mariana Olvera Posted on May 4, 2019 at 4:17 pm

    Love it !😉

  72. Anita Jackson Posted on May 10, 2019 at 3:49 am

    I will make this but no cranberries.

  73. Anita Jackson Posted on May 10, 2019 at 3:54 am

    I bet you can swap walnuts instead of the sunflower seeds and it would be just as delicious.

  74. Borjana R Posted on May 10, 2019 at 4:47 am

    Broccoli should never be eaten completely raw. You need to bleach it first. It’s quite dangerous to eat is raw.

  75. Elaine McMurren Posted on May 11, 2019 at 12:22 am

    It’s not new. I used to make it 35 years ago.
    But, it is delicious.

  76. Orsolya Minik Posted on May 12, 2019 at 10:05 am

    I’ve not just learned from your videos how to make the perfect boiled eggs but now the mayonnaise and the bacon, too!! Ah, and a super easy way to use broccoli without cooking it first! 👍

  77. Sarah Strong Posted on May 13, 2019 at 8:40 am

    If you are making this for a party please omit the yoghurt from the mayonnaise & serve the goats cheese seperately, or you will cause problems for the 11-15% of people in the U.K who have been diagnosed lactose intolerant & yes, even a tiny amount of dairy can cause severe problems. So unless you want your party spoilt by bad smells & people bent in pain & dashing to the loo, best to keep dairy seperate, so people can choose. Hiding it in mayonnaise, definitely not a good idea.
    Apart from that it sounds delicious. Thankyou.

  78. Claret trejo Posted on May 14, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    It’s a shame but the bacon made this salad unhealthy. Why bacon?
    I’ll make it without the bacon and the mayo, I’ll use kefir instead

  79. Lorena USA Posted on May 19, 2019 at 1:08 am

    Simple!! Love it!

  80. Tootsla 125 Posted on May 24, 2019 at 9:38 pm

    Never been a fan of raw broccoli and after trying this recipe – I'm still really really really not a fan. I like the other ingredients, but I'll make it with spinach.

  81. Lynelle Thompson Posted on May 30, 2019 at 3:45 pm

    No thank you to the bacon!! Pigs do not sweat , therefore they retain all toxins. When you eat pig you are eating toxin laden meat. For your health it is best to choose an alternative to pig meat.

  82. Lynelle Thompson Posted on May 30, 2019 at 3:47 pm

    Do you have a recipe for egg free mayo? TY

  83. Avanie Sandoval Posted on June 18, 2019 at 3:03 am

    Finally made this salad today and I loved it!! We eat broccoli often in our home. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I really enjoy your channel.

  84. Top Best Talent Posted on June 19, 2019 at 7:30 am

    My wife makes Broccoli Salad to but we are going to try yours this looks so yummy thanks for this video you are awesome….Keep up the great work you do..A+A+A+

  85. Syl's Reborns Posted on June 27, 2019 at 6:33 am

    This looks amazing. I was wondering about the raw egg, does the lemon juice and vinegar take care of any problems, if present?

  86. Cashopa Hodge Posted on July 1, 2019 at 6:21 pm

    I made this today. I stir fried the broccoli and used bbq chicken from last night that had bacon on it. Topped with homemade mayo from the Downshiftology recipe! It was delicious and looks very pretty!

  87. Joy Marino Posted on July 3, 2019 at 10:36 pm

    Question? You didn't wash the broccoli?

  88. Barby Lee Posted on July 4, 2019 at 2:43 am

    Beautiful. Video…thank you

  89. Andy M Posted on July 4, 2019 at 4:41 pm

    I would steam the broccoli for a tiny bit of time just to remove the rawness of it.
    If you want it raw, at least blanch it to brighten the color and flavor.

  90. Kathy Wilkins Posted on July 5, 2019 at 6:36 am

    You can use the shortcut of packaged bacon bits and pieces. It works if you really don't have time to cook bacon. I just do mayo and red wine vinegar to dress and sugar to taste. Whisk until sugar dissolves. Can use stevia.

  91. Matt B Posted on July 13, 2019 at 8:46 pm

    I've been making this salad for over 10 years, though I have modified it. No bacon (vegetarian). Golden raisins instead of cranberries. Cashews instead of sunflower seeds. No cheese.

  92. Phi Do Posted on July 29, 2019 at 9:57 pm

    Ummm yummy! Thanks for very much helpful advice. Love it

  93. Sue Mitchell Posted on August 1, 2019 at 2:23 am

    My favorite salad. Have to make the mayonnaise for a healthier dressing. Yum.

  94. Eda Ö Posted on August 11, 2019 at 3:51 pm

    Tip: roast the seeds!
