Ingredients

  • 4 cups diced broccoli charred
  • ¼ cup red onion minced
  • 1/3 cup Real Mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup Honey Roasted Sliced Almonds
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • 4 slices bacon cooked crisp and crumbled

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to broil.
  2. Spread the diced broccoli over a foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the broccoli with oil then place it under the oven broiler until it is slightly charred. Watch closely – it will burn quickly. Remove from oven.
  3. Place all ingredients EXCEPT bacon in a medium serving dish/bowl. Mix well and refrigerate 1-2 hours or until ready to serve.
  4. Add crisped bacon pieces right before serving.
  5. Enjoy!
  6. TIP: If you prefer a milder onion, you can soak in cold water for 15 minutes before tossing it in. It will take the edge off! I love a strong onion though, so no soaking for me!
