This dish can easily be adapted to your taste… More or less of any of the added ingredients. This is can be made Whole30 approved by using complaint ingredients.  This is also GAPS legal.

8 cups broccoli florets
4 slices cooked bacon chopped
1/4-1/2 cup red onion (to taste)
1/2 cup toasted pecans chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins (unsweetened)
1/2 cup mayo or more as needed (may need up to 1 cup depending on preference)
1/2 – 1 tsp sea salt (to taste)

I like to steam my broccoli for about 5 minutes to bring out the color as well as soften it just a smidge. Just be careful not to over do it or your leftovers will be mushy!! Let broccoli cool, then mix all ingredients and refrigerate until ready to serve. The broccoli may absorb some of the mayo while sitting in the fridge.  If so, just toss well and add a little bit more until desired consistency is reached.
