Servings 2 serving


  • One head broccoli medium
  • 100 grams bacon cubes
  • 8 - 10 almonds
  • 1/2 onion chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil

For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsps cheddar cheese sharp (optional)
  • to taste salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper freshly ground


  • Chop the broccoli in medium sized florets. Now you can either blanch them in boiling water for 3-4 minutes or grill them in the oven at 180C for 6 mins. Don't overcook the broccoli, the salad tastes best when the broccoli is crisp.
  • Thaw and saute the bacon cubes till crisp and browned.
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan and lightly toast the almonds in it. If you like spicy salads, feel free to add some paprika just before it is done.
  • Mix all the dressing ingredients together till well blended. I haven't used cheese in the photo above but I often use it while making this salad
  • Gently mix together broccoli, bacon and the dressing. Sprinkle the toasted nuts on top and serve warm or cold.
