Broccoli, Onion - Favorite Broccoli Salad

Updated: Jun 12, 2018

This broccoli salad recipe is the best! It’s healthy, too, thanks to the delicious honey-mustard vinaigrette (no mayo).


1 pound broccoli florets roughly chopped

1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds or slivered almonds

1/2 cup finely chopped red onion

1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese (optional)

1/3 cup dried cranberries or dried tart cherries, chopped


Honey mustard dressing

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon honey

1 medium clove garlic, pressed or minced

1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt


Toast the sunflower seeds: Pour the sunflower seeds into a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently (careful, they’ll burn!), until the seeds are turning golden on the sides, about 5 minutes. Pour the toasted seeds into a large serving bowl. Add the chopped broccoli, onion, cheese and cranberries to the serving bowl. Set aside. In a 1-cup liquid measuring cup or small bowl, combine all of the dressing ingredients (olive oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, garlic and salt). Whisk until the mixture is well blended. Pour the dressing over the salad and stir until all of the broccoli is lightly coated in dressing. I highly recommend letting the salad marinate for at least 20 minutes, or even overnight in the refrigerator. Divide the salad into individual bowls and serve. Leftovers will keep well for 3 to 4 days in the fridge, covered. Author: Cookie and Kate Prep Time: 20 minutes Yield: 6 side servings
