Broccoli Salad

I found this recipe on, but made my own modifications to use what I had on hand.

Broccoli Salad 


2 bunches of broccoli, washed, chopped
handful of dried cranberries
handful of toasted chopped almonds
handful of chopped walnuts

four strips of 'bacon', crisped, sliced**
4-5 mushrooms, sliced

1/3 cup mayo (light, made with olive oil in my case)
tiny bit of milk (almond in my case)


Fry up the bacon and mushrooms until crispy (or sweaty in case of the mushrooms). **I used chicken bacon and did not use oil. In the meantime, combine broccoli, cranberries, and nuts. In a small bowl, mix mayo and mix with a tiny bit of milk to get a smoother, more liquid-y consistency.

Mix everything else together - bacon, mushrooms, and mayo sauce.

Eat, and enjoy! The cranberries and crispy 'bacon' make the broccoli absolutely to die for. You'll love it, I promise!

Broccoli Salad, with some leftover bits of salad from the other night!
