Mom's Broccoli & Green Olive Salad

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

Mom has made this for years. We love olives and this gives the salad a zip. Of course, adjusting the amounts of each ingredient is a personal choice, if you like more bacon or more olives, etc.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix broccoli, bacon and green olives together.
  2. Mix in enough mayo to hold the above ingredients together.
  3. Gently mix in the eggs, adding more mayo to hold all ingredients together.
  4. We serve this on lettuce leaves.

Well, I can't believe no one has tried this fabulous salad. It has a lot of flavor and the colors are beautiful. I used Hellman's Light Mayonnaise and it very good. This would make a lovely potluck dish too. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe, Merlot!!

Oh, wow! This is like the special broccoli salad I used to get at my grocery store's deli 12 years ago! I've missed it. This is such a good combination of ingredients. I was wondering what to take with me to a family get-together next week end. Great recipe!

Love olives and love broccoli, this salad! Added some chopped red pepper and a leetle low-fat Ranch dressing to the salad in place of the mayo. Delish!
