  • 1 large head of broccoli chopped into florets (about 5 cups)
  • 6 slices bacon*
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 3/4 cup Ranch dressing**


  1. Heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Once hot, add the bacon, and cook for 3-4 minutes per side (depending on desired crispiness). Set aside to cool on paper towels. Once cooled, chop into pieces.

  2. In a large bowl, combine bite sized broccoli pieces, sunflower seeds, raisins, red onion, bacon, and ranch dressing. Stir until well combined.

  3. Transfer to the fridge, and let sit for at least 3-4 hours before serving, or overnight.

Recipe Notes

*Use a sugar free bacon such as Peterson Farm's

**I use Tessamae's Paleo Ranch, but feel free to use your own personal favorite. To make a homemade ranch, combine 1/2 cup Paleo Mayo (Primal Kitchen), 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk, 1 tsp dried parsley, 1 tsp dried dill, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp sea salt.
