Broccoli and Apple Bacon Salad

Barbara Oseland


This salad was an accident in the works. All of these ingredients worked really well together so I keep making it. The sweetness from the apples, the smoky maple bacon and tartness from the cranberries are a great combo!

3/4 c
red apple cut into large matchstick size
1/2 small
red onion, diced in small pieces
3 slice
maple or applewood bacon (could use turkey bacon)


2 Tbsp
mayonnaise (hellmans) light
1/4 c
daisy sour cream, fat-free
2 clove
garlic, minced
11/2 tsp
cider vinegar
1/2 tsp
brown sugar, light
3 Tbsp
dried cranberries unsweetened
1/4 tsp
black pepper
3 Tbsp
sliced almonds, no salt


1Whisk garlic, mayo, sour cream, vinegar and sugar in a bowl. Add broccoli, apple, onions, bacon, cranberries and pepper. Stir to coat with dressing. Refrigerate until serving. Add almonds and toss.
Note: If you find that the dressing is too thick for you, add some milk or a squeeze of fresh lemon juice which would also help with the apples turning brownish.
