Prep Time 20 mins

Servings 9 1-cup servings


  • 6 cups fresh broccoli broken down into small florets
  • 2 cups store-bought broccoli slaw or another 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 8 slices compliant bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup red seedless grapes halved
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds or chopped cashews
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 cup mayo compatible, if on Whole30. See note.
  • 6 dates soak in 1 cup hot water
  • 2 T red wine vinegar


  • SOAK dates in hot water in small bowl or cup.
  • TRIM broccoli florets. Optional, but I like the florets to be small and without a lot of stem. I cut the stems off large florets and then cut them into halves or fourths with kitchen shears. 
  • COMBINE dry ingredients (broccoli through raisins) in a large bowl.
  • BLEND together mayo, softened dates (discard the water they were soakin in), and vinegar in a blender or small food processor.
  • STIR mayo mixture into dry ingredients.
  • SERVE cold and store in the fridge.
