Broccoli Salad with Craisins, Almonds, and Red Onion

by Katie on May 8, 2012

Whenever I spot broccoli salad on a salad bar, it is always one of the first things I go for! I love it so much, but for some reason it’s always just been an occasional salad bar thing. One day I was trying to come up with a make ahead salad that would use up some broccoli I had and I remembered this lovely salad. I combined what I have loved about the different ones I have tried and I came up with something that was so delicious.

Broccoli Salad with Craisins, Almonds, and Red Onion


  • 6 cups small broccoli florets
  • 2/3 cup craisins
  • 1/2 cup red onion, small dice
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • Dressing:
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoon honey


  1. Whisk the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over the other ingredients. Mix well and refrigerate for a few hours before serving.

Sounds delicious! This may seem like a dumb question, but should I steam the broccoli first?

Hi Kristin! That’s not a dumb questions at all :) Nope, no need to steam the broccoli!
