The best part is that leftovers are even better, because the longer it sits, the more flavor it has!

Ingredients

4 1/2 cups broccoli florets, cut into small bite-size pieces

8 slices uncured bacon

1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted

3/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup sour cream

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup red onion, minced

2 tablespoons swerve confectioners

Salt and pepper to taste

 Preparation

Fry the bacon, then crumble into small bits and set aside.

Add all the remaining ingredients into a large bowl, except the broccoli, bacon, red onion and pine nuts, and whisk to combine.

Add in the broccoli, bacon, pine nuts and red onion over the dressing and toss to coat.

Allow to sit for 20-30 minutes so the flavors can develop and the broccoli can absorb the dressing.

The longer it sits, the better it is!

Note: If you don’t like the broccoli raw, you can steam it for 2 minutes and dry well before mixing in the dressing.  You can also substitute the pine nuts with sunflower seeds, chopped walnuts or slivered almonds.

Delicious! Reminds me of those tasty broccoli salads often available at the grocery store deli counter. I used pecans for the nuts and Kirkland bacon bits instead of fresh cooked bacon. I am sure that fresh cooked bacon would be tastier, but I am having no trouble finishing up this batch 🙂

I agree that it gets better as it sits. On day 3, it hit its stride: broccoli a bit soft from marinating, with all of the flavors nicely mingled.
