Lunch Today: Broccoli Salad & Hard Boiled Eggs

BroccoliSalad001My yummy lunch for today.  Prior to starting SCD I loved broccoli salad. I loved the creamy sweet dressing, the bacon and of course the yummy broccoli. I don’t know why it has taken me almost 3 years to try to adapt a recipe for SCD but it did.  I think that it was because I finally had a bunch of broccoli and a batch of homemade mayonnaise made at the same time. The adaption turned out great! The recipe I adapted was Bodacious Broccoli Salad from  I made this for dinner last night along with rotisserie chicken and today it is even better after the broccoli has sat in the dressing all night.

SCD Broccoli Salad adpated from Bodacious Broccoli Salad from

  • 1/8 cup of red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 2 TBS of honey

  2. Add the mayonnaise.
