A Lightened up Broccoli Salad filled with fresh broccoli, cranberries, red onions, pepitas, bacon, and creamy dressing made with greek yogurt! This salad will be a hit and you’ll love the short cut I take to make it!



  • 8 cups broccoli florets
  • 7 strips of bacon, diced
  • 3/4 cup diced red onion
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup pepitas
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt (full fat)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar


  1. Heat a pan to medium high heat.
  2. Add the bacon to the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until they are crispy. Place cooked bacon on a paper towel lined plate to dry and let some of the grease fall off.
  3. In a small bowl, add greek yogurt, stone ground mustard, honey, and apple cider vinegar. Whisk until combined. Set aside.
  4. To a large bowl add broccoli florets, bacon, red onion, cranberries, pepitas and dressing. Gently toss ingredients until they are mixed together and the broccoli is coated with dressing.
  5. Serve.
