Broccoli Salad

Dansk Udgave

This is a classic both here in US and in Denmark. I think most people know this salad. But even though it's very old school, it shouldn't deter you from putting it on the table. The sweet, salty, crunchy salad will be a hit at the dinner table.


  • 2 broccoli crowns, in small florets

  • 1 medium red onion, in small dices

  • 100 g sunflower seeds

  • 100 g raisins

  • 250 g bacon


  • 95 g Miracle Whip

  • 45 g sour cream

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 2-3 teaspoons red wine vinegar

  • salt and pepper to taste


Mix all the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl, set aside.

Place bacon in a deep skillet and cook over medium high heat until crisp and brown. Cool and cut into small pieces.

Cut the broccoli into bite-size pieces, and chop up the onion finely. Combine ¾ of the bacon, raisins, broccoli and sunflower seeds, and toss it with the dressing. 

Serve the salad chilled, and with sprinkles of bacon-bits and sunflower seeds on top.



The Danish version: 



  • 2 broccolitoppe, i små mundrette buketter

  • 1 medium rød løg, i små tern

  • 100 g solsikkefrø

  • 100 g rosiner

  • 250 g bacon


  • 95 g Miracle Whip

  • 45 g creme fraiche

  • 3 spsk honning

  • 2-3 tsk rødvinseddike

  • salt and peber efter smag


Rist baconen sprød, køl den af og skær den i mindre stykker.

Bland dressingen, og sæt den til side.

Bland ¾ af baconen med broccoli, løg, solsikkefrø og rosiner, og vend det i dressingen.

Server salaten kølig med et drys bacon og solsikkekerner på toppen.
