A low carb salad great for any occasion
This salad brings a fresh, chilled dish to the table. Perfect for any setting, I often make a batch and have it for lunch during the week, but it is also a hit at parties and picnics. Especially when you need to bring a dish to a non-keto party!
Rich in a variety of nutrients, broccoli is a great source of antioxidants and fiber. Packed with flavor and texture, this dish only requires a handful of ingredients and is simple to prepare. I prefer cubed cheese in this salad, but have used shredded in a pinch. I usually prepare a large batch of bacon for the week and have cooked bacon on hand, but if you are starting with raw bacon, simply bake it at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes on each side or until desired crispiness is achieved.
I am not a fan of apple cider vinegar, or really any vinegar for that matter, but the sweetener balances it out and removes any vinegar-like taste. I keep Bragg's ACV on hand for dishes like this. I used granular Swerve to sweeten this salad, but you could also use Truvia, Stevia, or any other erythritol blend you prefer.
Perfect for picnics or parties, this salad is a crowd pleaser and will leave you feeling satisfied.
1 head broccoli
1 small red onion
5 slices bacon, cooked
1/2 cup cubed or shredded cheese
1 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons granulated sweetener
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Wash broccoli and chop into florets. Place florets in a large bowl.
Peel red onion and chop into small pieces. Add to bowl with broccoli.
Chop or break cooled, crispy bacon up into small pieces and add to broccoli and onion mix.
If using shredded, simply add cheese to bowl. Otherwise, cut cheese into cubes and add to bowl. Stir ingredients.
Add remaining ingredients (apple cider vinegar, sweetener and mayonnaise) and mix well.
This dish can be served immediately, but is best chilled at least two hours before serving.
