keto broccoli and bacon salad

BROCCOLI & BACON SALAD

I’ve got my “skoonma” to thank for this Bacon & Broccoli Salad! She tore it out of a Huisgenoot a couple of years ago and ask if this could be keto-friendly?

It’s so easy to make and have it as a side in the fridge. It lasts long and goes with any protein really. Just make sure to add the dressing only when you serve instead of adding the dressing once you’ve made the recipe. The broccoli will become a bit soggy.

On the days when I lazy, I’ll simply use the already chopped bacon bits instead of cutting the bacon up myself. Feel free to add any type of cheese. We prefer gouda and cheddar over feta cheese so many of my recipes will simply have gouda in. The sunflower seed mix also gives it a wonderful twist of crunchiness.
