Munching with MOPS: Miel’s Broccoli Salad

Every other Tuesday I have the privilege of spending time with a very special group of women: the Blue Ridge MOPS (Mothers of PreSchoolers). We recently shared around our favorite recipes with each other and it only makes sense to share some of these great foods with you, my readers. Today’s recipe is from Miel.

Miel’s Broccoli Salad


  • 1 bunch broccoli, cut into bit-sized pieces
  • 1 c. raisins
  • 1/4 c. diced red onions
  • 10 strips bacon, fried and crumbled
  • 1 c. sunflower seeds

Mix the dressing:

  • 2 T. sugar
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise or plain yogurt
  • 1 T. vinegar

Combine the salad dressing and the salad fixings.

If you want this to be a vegetarian dish, just leave out the bacon. Miel actually brought a bacon-less version of this salad to MOPS and we all scarfed it down. It still worked without the meat. This salad goes together really quickly and it’s even faster without the bacon.

  1. Love this salad! I wish Miel would bring it every time we meet!!! I think I will put this on the menu for this week! Being vegan, I will use a soy-based mayo, and leave out the bacon. I may add a little shredded carrot, and play around with an apple cider vinegar…hmmm. Thanks again, Barb! And by the way, we MOPS think you are very special, too!

    • I was surprised at how delicious this salad is WITHOUT the bacon. I love bacon but I didn’t miss it at all when it got left out.
