  • Skillet or sheet pan
  • 2 small mixing bowls
  • Cutting Board
  • Knife
  • Whisk


For the salad

  • 2 cups broccoli, chopped
  • ½ cup shredded cheese
  • ½ cup red onion, diced
  • cup bacon, chopped

For the dressing

  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  • Cook  and chop bacon to your liking. I love baking it at 400F for 15-18 minutes OR dicing it up finely and cooking over medium high heat on the stove.
  • Wash and chop your produce. Dice the red onion finely. Shred cheddar cheese if not already pre-shredded. 
  • Put all chopped ingredients into a mixing bowl. 
  • In another small mixing bowl, whisk together plain greek yogurt, cane sugar, and balsamic vinegar until sugar is dissolved.  Toss with chopped ingredients.
  • Store in the fridge and serve chilled! 


Save a teaspoon or so of bacon grease to add to your dressing! It will add great flavor.
