Easy Side Dish Recipe

Today I am sharing with you a fabulous recipe from the brand new Add a Pinch cookbook by my blogging friend, Robyn Stone. This is Robyn’s debut cookbook, and it is fabulous. It is packed full of mouth-watering recipes. I had a really hard time picking just one recipe to share with you, but I finally decided on this Broccoli Pineapple Salad. We love broccoli and pineapple, so we were excited to try this! The hardest part of the recipe is chopping all the fruits and veggies.

How to Make Pineapple Broccoli Salad

This recipe is super simple and crazy good!! I made this yesterday, and we ate this with lunch and dinner. It is really, really good. We could have actually made this our meal! Chicken Legs said this needed to be on the menu at our favorite bakery-cafes! It would be the most popular side dish on the menu! LOL!

To make the salad, combine the broccoli, cheese, onion, grapes, pineapple, pecans, and bacon in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, and sugar. Spoon the dressing over the broccoli mixture and toss gently until evenly coated. Refrigerate the mixture until ready to serve.

  1. Hello, I had some trouble with this recipe but it might have been because of some of the substitutions I made. I decided to just use vanilla flavored Greek yogurt and then skip the sugar because it was already sweet enough. The result was that the salad came out tasting really bitter and the bitterness increased with time. I can’t think of what would have caused this except for the substitutions I made. What do you think went wrong? Thanks

    1. My guess is the same thing you said, the substitutions. It is a really good salad as written.

  2. Does the broccoli need to be cooked before putting it in the salad? Sorry, I realize this is a dumb question! 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️

  3. Do you add these recipes to Pinterest. I'm finding it impossible to save your recipes to Pinterest, no matter what tricks I use. Very annoying! If you could save them to your Pinterest account & just note where to look I would be

    1. Greek yogurt and sour cream taste almost exactly the same. Greek yogurt however, has about 20 grams of protein in a cup, and sour cream does not.

    2. Greek yogurt and sour cream taste almost exactly the same. I have started using greek yogurt instead of sour cream in just about everything. Greek yogurt has about 20 grams of protein in a cup and no fat or added sugars. It makes things smooth and creamy. I love it.

  4. WE MADE THIS YESTERDAY,SOOO EASY JACK LOVED IT NOW IT IS ON OUR SUMMER HAVE TO HAVE LIST!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! THE DRESSING WAS AWESOME!!!

  5. I make broccoli salad but have never thought to add grapes, pineapple and/or pecans. I'll have to try this one next time. It sounds really good.

  6. OMG! This sounds amazing! The flavor combinations will be a family hit! Thanks for sharing.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,
