Great BBQ Side dish – Broccoli Salad with pumpkin seeds & bacon

Diva Q Broccoli Salad


Full disclosure: I am not sure where this recipe came from.  My additions are pumpkin seeds and using Dukes mayo. I know that my parents used to make it with shredded cheddar and golden onions, our neighbours used to use fried kielbasa in it, another friend served finely chopped red peppers. This dish shows up on a lot of pot luck tables. For good reason. Its a tasty treat that seems to appeal to a large audience.


Here is my recipe:

3 heads Broccoli trimmed washed and cut into bite size pieces

1/2 – 3/4 cup raisins

1/2 pound of bacon cooked & crumbled

1 red onion finely minced

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds


For the dressing:

1 cup Dukes Mayo

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons white sugar

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp salt


Whisk together the dressing ingredients until the sugar has dissolved.

Toss dressing with salad ingredients. Serve- Keeps well till the next day too!
