  • Broccoli and Bacon Salad

    Hi everyone! I'm new to posting on the site, but my husband and I have been doing a slow transition to primal for the last few months. I really enjoy reading the recipes on the forum. Being primal has given me a new zest for cooking!

    I've made this salad several times over the last month or so - I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do! To be honest, the amounts are approximate as I tend to just cook by sight and taste.

    1 head of broccoli, chopped into bite size pieces
    8 thick slices of pepper bacon, chopped into bite size pieces (the brand I buy is Niman Ranch)
    3/4 c. of homemade ghee mayo (recipe from this site Homemade Ghee Mayo | Mark's Daily Apple) If you are feeling really decadent or crafty, you could use some of your bacon drippings in place of olive oil in the mayo.
    1/4 c. of pine nuts
    pepper or other seasonings to taste.

    Whip it up in a bowl together - Let it sit refridgerated for a few hours to let the flavors blend together.

    That sounds good and I just happen to have made baconnaise the other day. Thanks for the recipe.

      Sounds good except pine nuts are too expensive here. Other nuts probably good in it too.

        Mmm. I love broccoli salad! I hate broccoli otherwise and don't eat it much. Will have to try.

          I've been terribly bored with my BAS recently so I did this:

          Chopped 3-5 sliced of bacon up into bites. Fry them until to my liking (I like crispy.) Take out bacon, leave drippings. With the pan turned down low, added in some garlic. Sauteed a few minutes, then squeeze in a whole lemon*. Salt & pepper to your liking. add bacon back in, heat through, pour over BAS.

          You can also saute some onion with the garlic however, I like my onion raw in my BAS.

          * If you microwave a lemon for 10-30 seconds (depending if they're room temp or cold), then roll them back and forth on the counter with your palm pressing down, you will get a TON more juice! This also works with limes, oranges, grapefruits, etc.
