Recipes Creamy Broccoli Salad (Side dish)

Number of Servings
    • 2 strips low-sodium bacon
    • 1/2 cup ice cubes
    • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
    • 1/2 cup buttermilk
    • 1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
    • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 6 1/2 cups broccoli florets (about 1 pound), cut into bite-sized pieces
    • 1/3 cup golden raisins
    • 2 tablespoons salted, roasted sunflower seeds

Cook the bacon in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, and reserve 1 teaspoon drippings for the dressing. Finely chop the bacon strips and reserve.  Whisk the buttermilk, sour cream, lemon zest and juice, reserved bacon drippings, 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Add the broccoli, onions and golden raisins to the dressing. Toss well, cover and chill for at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours.  Before serving, toss well and season with additional salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving dish and top with the chopped bacon and sunflower seeds.
