Broccoli Salad Recipe

I have to be honest here.

I didn’t come up with this completely on my own. I got the idea from one of my friends, when I went to her house for a big dinner. (Thanks Jen!) But I’ve developed it a bit further!

Some of you have asked for this recipe on different social media channels, and now, here it is!


Raw Broccoli Salad

You’ll need:

1 broccoli (depending on how hungry, or how many you are this varies)
6 slices of bacon
1 pomegranate (seeds) (you can also buy these ready, a lot less hassle!)

Olive oil
Fresh lemon juice

Do this:

1.Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry it until crisp
2. Grate the broccoli (or you can use a blender, just don’t blend it too much)
3. Mix the soaked off bacon with the broccoli and the pomegranate seeds
4. Mix olive oil, a squeeze of lemon juice, salt and pepper and pour it over the salad.
5. Enjoy it as a side dish or on its own!

If you have digestive issues with raw broccoli, I suggest you blanch it first (drop it in boiling water for just a minute) and let it dry slightly before making this yummy salad. Doing this makes it a lot softer on the stomach. The taste becomes a little less “fresh” and if you don’t let it dry enough, it can become a little watery.

You can also substitute the pomegranate for raisins or other dried fruits. The carbohydrate count does increase then, so keep that in mind. And pomegranates are super healthy, they are packed with good things that make your body run smoothly.
