  • 8 cups fresh broccoli cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced finely
  • 1/2 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, cubed
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 5 tablespoons low-carb sweetener (Erythritol) (more or less to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled


  1. Combine broccoli, red onion, sunflower or pumpkin seeds, and cheese in a large bowl.

  2. In a separate bowl, mix the mayonnaise, sweetener and vinegar together until smooth. Stir into the salad.

  3. Let salad chill for about 3 hours. It may not seem like enough dressing but after it chills the dressing marinates and is plenty. This also allows the flavors to meld. Stir in the bacon right before serving.

    Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Recipe Notes

I like to add the bacon right before serving to keep it crispy.
