Easy and delicious...try adding some diced feta cheese, or chopped chillies etc to it

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove the broccoli florets and cut them into smaller ones. Cut the end of the stalk, then cut it in half lengthways and finely slice.
  2. Blanch the broccoli in boiling salted water for 60 seconds, just to soften, but leaving it with a bite. Drain it and spread it over a clean tea towel to steam dry ( it helps the dressing cling to it). Once completely dry transfer to a serving dish.
  3. Fry the bacon with a splash of olive oil, until crisp and , then spoon most of it over the broccoli. Use the leftover fat from the pan in your dressing, by pouring it into a mixing bowl with the other dressing ingredients, and whisking well.
  4. Add the sliced tomatoes and chopped chives to the broccoli and bacon. Dress it well and check the seasoning. Add the chive flowers and serve.

Very different broccoli salad! Loved the colors just after making this. But it tasted better after letting it chill for a day in the refridgerator. Really anything with bacon!! Made for PRMR tag.

Made your recipe as given & it was delicious! I ate it as made, but my other half added a bit of blue cheese & enjoyed that! Making it like this &, I think, including some of the bacon fat in the dressing gave it an added dimension that really made it special! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was a nice change from the usual broccoli salad. I really liked the dressing too. It made a nice side dish for my chicken and diablo pasta.
