When I found this broccoli salad video recipe tutorial by Downshiftology on YouTube, I was so happy to find a new salad to add to my healthy eating repertoire. I am always on the lookout for a new and interesting salad idea, and this broccoli salad does not disappoint. There is a really simple recipe for homemade mayonnaise in this tutorial, as well, that came as an excellent surprise. I had a homemade mayonnaise recipe like the one in the video in the Seventies, but I lost it many years ago. This mayo recipe is so similar because it is made with a whole egg, oil, and mustard in a food processor or blender and only takes a couple of minutes to make.
Ingredients For Broccoli Salad:
- 4 to 8 cups of Broccoli florets
- 8 to 10 slices of bacon (cooked)
- 1 purple onion (sliced or chopped)
- 1/2 cup of dried cranberries

In this broccoli salad video recipe tutorial by Downshiftology on YouTube, you will learn how to make a healthy salad that tastes delicious. You start by cooking 8 to 10 slices of bacon on a parchment-lined baking sheet under the oven broiler.
Then just add your other salad ingredients and top with the homemade mayonnaise and yogurt dressing.
This salad tastes every bit as good as it looks. This salad is going to help me lose weight because it has all the flavor of something rich and fattening without the calories.
