This recipe for broccoli salad without mayo is the same as classic broccoli salad except it swaps mayonnaise for Greek yogurt. It uses all of the traditional mix-ins like bacon, red onions, cranberries, and sunflower seeds.


  • 4 slices bacon
  • 8 cups (about 1 ½ pounds) raw broccoli, cut into florets
  • ⅓ cup red onion diced
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds


  • 1 ½ cup plain Greek yogurt (use full-fat instead of non-fat for more creaminess)
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper


  1. Slice the bacon widthwise into thin strips. Add it to a small skillet over medium high heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until cooked to your desired crispiness. Drain the grease and set aside the bacon on a plate to cool.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the dressing ingredients: yogurt, apple cider vinegar, honey, garlic powder, salt & pepper.
  3. Add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl: cooked bacon, broccoli, red onion, cranberries, and sunflower seeds.
  4. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss thoroughly until coated. Add additional honey (for sweetness) or salt & pepper, as desired.
    Cover and refrigerate your salad for at least 20 minutes and up to overnight before serving.
