Pineapple Broccoli Salad
IMG_0115IMG_0111
I planned to make Huli Huli chicken and while it had some sweet it also was spicy and tangy looking. Since the sauce had pineapple juice and was Hawaiian I decided to somehow marry up pineapple and broccoli.
I also wanted to stay cold and use raw broccoli. I remember a salad side that is served at local place called “Short Stop”. Jill and I would always get the broccoli salad as a side. So that shaped and steered me into coming up with this recipe.

It’s fresh, crunchy, cold with a touch of sweetness.

Ingredients:
Couple of Crowns of Broccoli (diced up)
1/4 cup of diced pineapple (tiny pieces)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup walnuts
4 green onions diced
2 strips of crispy bacon
1/2 cup of Duke’s Mayo
3 tbs of sugar
2 tbs of white vinegar

Directions:
1. Super easy. Dice it all up and then make mix your wet ingredients. The broccoli is raw and crisp so the longer it is in the sauce the less crunchy it will be. I say 30minutes is a good time in the sauce.

2. Make your crispy bacon by baking for 50 minutes on 300 or microwave for about 3-4 minutes(stopping about every 40 seconds to check on it) Crumble on top of the served salad.

  1. I’ve tried all of those broccoli salads with raisins and I just don’t like raisins. I think pineapple is the best idea ever! Love, love, love pineapple! Will make this since I have a lot of fresh broccoli. Thanks!
