Broccoli salad meal prep

Broccoli salad is one of our favorite lunches. It’s perfect for a grab-and-go lunch at the office or on campus because the broccoli keeps its crunchy texture, even when mixed with the creamy dressing. You can throw the broccoli salad meal prep together in under fifteen minutes and we guarantee you that everybody will ask for the recipe wherever you bring it.

In contrast to the broccoli, red onion, jalapeño, bacon, and cheddar, the broccoli salad recipe has a bit of sweetness thanks to apple cider vinegar in the dressing. The contrasting flavors blend perfectly together, and the Greek yogurt gives the dressing a creamy texture. The best broccoli salad you’ll ever try!

Broccoli salad: Do We Need to Blanch The Broccoli?

We usually do not blanch broccoli florets when making broccoli salad. If you prefer to do so, simply bring a pot of salted water to a boil and then boil the broccoli forest for one minute. Soak broccoli in ice-cold water to stop the broccoli from over-cooking and to keep the bright green color. Pat dry the blanched broccoli.

1. To make the creamy broccoli meal prep salad: Cook the bacon until crisp. Drain from fat and chop into small bits.

2. Toss with broccoli, red onion, cheddar, Jalapeño, and bacon, in a large salad bowl.

3. In a separate bowl, stir the mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar, mustard, a pinch of salt, and a few grinds of pepper together. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

4. Pour two-thirds of the dressing over the broccoli salad and mix well. If the broccoli salad seems a little dry, add a little more of the dressing. Divide the creamy broccoli meal prep salad into meal prep containers. ❤️

Tips for the Creamy Broccoli Salad recipe

  • You can keep the broccoli salad and the creamy dressing separately in small containers. When ready to eat, drizzle the dressing and let stand at least 15 minutes before serving the creamy broccoli salad with bacon.
  • To make this broccoli and bacon salad lighter, use 100% Greek yogurt instead of mayo.
  • If you have some time available and are not afraid to turn on the oven for this broccoli salad recipe: Baking bacon is easy and results in crisp bacon slices, perfect for this broccoli salad. Bake your thick bacon slices in the oven at 400ºF (200ºC) until crisp, 12 to 18 minutes.

Can we use frozen broccoli florets for this meal prep salad?

We wouldn’t recommend using frozen broccoli.  This broccoli salad is intended to be crunchy. Thawed frozen broccoli tends to be mushy and would not work the same way in the salad.

Yes, this broccoli salad recipe is naturally gluten-free. Always remember to check labels when buying your products to make sure you buy the gluten-free options

How and how to store the broccoli salad leftovers?
