Broccoli Salad THM S, Keto, Sugar-free, Low-carb

A simple classic Broccoli Salad is always a hit with our family and when taken to community dinners I usually bring an empty bowl home. This salad combines the best of home-cured, smoked bacon, tart cranberries, and fresh broccoli in a creamy dressing. If you would like, you can even add some cauliflower to this salad.

Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable, a superfood, low in calories, full of antioxidants, and just plain good for you! The word broccoli comes from the Italian word broccolo which mean the flowering crest of a cabbage.

If you ever travel the back roads of Lancaster County, Pa, especially in the fall, you will see fields upon fields of cabbage broccoli, and cauliflower. Below is a picture of a field of cabbage/broccoli/cauliflower.

My husband loves to smoke meats and he cures and smokes bacon for us every year. We are so spoiled cause we think bought bacon doesn’t taste as good as our own home-cured and smoked does. Below are bacons hanging on our smokehouse. These are ready to be placed into the cooler. Two days later we will slice, vacuum pack, and freeze the bacon.
