Looking for the perfect side dish? Look no further…I have you covered with this 21 Day Fix Broccoli Salad with Turkey Bacon and Pumpkin Seeds.

This is the perfect side dish for any occasion – the holidays (Thanksgiving, I’m thinking of you!), a BBQ, a potluck (or as we like to call it in Texas, a “Covered Dish”), or any dinner (this would pair perfectly with any protein). 

{updated: I’ve added Weight Watchers points at the bottom of this post!}

The mayonnaise-free dressing is tangy and bright, while the broccoli and pumpkin seeds are nice and crunchy (the perfect combo). Serve this dish chilled.

21 Day Fix Broccoli Salad

Prep time: 15-20 minutes
Chill time: 30 minutes to overnight

Serves 4

Ingredients:

Dressing:
3/4 c. Greek yogurt
1 T. honey* or one very small pinch Stevia powder
2 T. fresh lemon juice
1 T. fresh lemon zest
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Broccoli Salad:
½ small red onion, outer skin removed and cut into thin slices
2 large heads fresh broccoli, tough stems removed, rinsed, and broken into florets

¼ c. fresh parsley, chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 c. toasted pumpkin seeds, unsalted – here’s a great spiced roasted pumpkin seed recipe

Directions:

21 Day Fix Broccoli Salad

Tip: To remove the harsh bite from the red onion, add slices to a bowl of water or white vinegar for approximately 15 minutes. Remove from liquid and pat dry before using.

To make the dressing, combine the Greek yogurt, honey, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.

Add the broccoli florets to a large, microwave-safe dish and add 2-3 T. water. Cover and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes, or until florets are crisp tender. (Check after 3 minutes and adjust cooking times accordingly).

Remove from microwave and drain excess liquid. Set aside, uncovered, and allow steamed florets to cool.

Top with ½ Greek yogurt dressing and toss again until ingredients are thoroughly coated. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes or overnight before serving. Cover and reserve remaining dressing, as well.

Toss chilled salad with remaining dressing right before serving, or serve on the side for those who prefer a little extra dressing.  Sprinkle with the toasted pumpkin seeds right before serving to keep them crunchy.

Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was with a rating and review!
The 21 Day Fix program is always changing, and while I do my very best and never want to mess up (perfectionist, yo) please always double check the container counts yourself…and that goes for all recipes, not just mine – I’ve seen some super shady ones out there!

21 Day Fix container counts, per serving: 

  • 1 green (actually a teeny bit over)
  • .75 red
  • 1.25 tsp (honestly, I wouldn’t count the .25…but it’s up to you!)
  • .5 orange 

These measurements are based on the pumpkin seed recipe I linked to…if you use a different recipe, or add more pumpkin seeds, you might need to change the calculations.

Be sure to join us on Facebook for lots of healthy, Fix-friendly recipes like this one, along with tons of free printables and planning help.

Weight Watchers SmartPoints: with honey – 4 points per serving, 17 per recipe; with Stevia – 3 points per serving, 13 per recipe

I hate the floating social media icons. They block the content, and there does not seem to be a minimize or hide button. Would it be so hard to maybe choose one side of your page to be advertising (including social media) and put it all there? Or put the floating icons over the ads? Or put your content in a frame with the ads and icons NOT blocking the text?
Not coming back here. Too frustrating and can’t read the recipe.
