Better Broccoli Salad [Paleo, Egg-Free, Sugar-Free]

Better Broccoli Salad [Paleo, Egg-Free, Sugar-Free]

Are you familiar with that broccoli salad you find at so many pot luck dinners? It's sweet and tangy and rich and crunchy and everything you could ever want in a broccoli salad. Plus, there's bacon, which means I might call it lunch. But when I finally got my hands on the recipe it called for gobs of soy oil mayo and tons of sugar. I'm not anti-sweetener, but it seems like a crime against humanity to do that to broccoli... and bacon. So, I came up with something different... something, I think, better.

Ingredients

  • 2 large bunches of broccoli
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 cup roasted or sprouted almonds, chopped roughly (where to buy sprouted almonds)
  • 3 Tablespoons raw honey (where to buy raw honey)
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (where to buy olive oil; yours is probably fake)
  • 4 strips of bacon, cooked, cooled, and crumbled (optional) (where to find nitrate-free bacon from foraged hogs; if they’re back-ordered, I use these guys)
  • salt to taste
