Prep: 10 minsTotal: 10 mins
Servings: 6 1x


  • 4 slices bacon, cooked
  • 2 heads broccoli, cut in very small pieces
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup pistachios, chopped
  • 1 cup whole milk yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook the bacon and set it aside on a plate lined with a paper towel.
  2. Cut the broccoli into small bites. This is the secret to this recipe! Small bites are better!
  3. Place all the broccoli pieces in a bowl and add the finely chopped onion, dried cranberries, chopped bacon, and chopped pistachios.
  4. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the whole milk yogurt (Greek or non-dairy yogurt works too), agave nectar (honey, coconut nectar, or maple syrup are also good options), lemon juice, pressed garlic, salt, and pepper.
  5. Pour the yogurt dressing on top of the broccoli salad and fold everything together to combine.
  6. You want all those broccoli leaves and pieces to be completely coated, so have some patience and make sure everything is nice and combined.
  7. Enjoy!
