  • 4-5 cups broccoli chopped
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 6-8 cups organic mixed greens chopped
  • 2 cups cabbage finely chopped
  • 8 slices turkey bacon cooked and chopped*
  • 3/4 cup unsalted roasted cashews roughly chopped
  • 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese*
  • 4 small radishes finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Add chopped broccoli to large bowl, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread broccoli out on large baking sheet and roast for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through. Remove and allow to cool.
  • While broccoli cooks and cools, add all dressing ingredients to medium mason jar, tighten lid and shake well or use a small whisk to stir and blend. I tend to go light on dressing, so this made way more than I needed, but it stores well in the refrigerator for future uses.
  • Add chopped mixed greens (I used a blend of organic spinach, kale, and spring mix), cabbage, and radishes to a large bowl. Then top with cooked and cooled bacon and broccoli, along with roughly chopped cashews and blue cheese. Toss or stir until all ingredients are well mixed.
  • Distribute evenly among 4 bowls, top with additional cashews or blue cheese if desired along with fresh chives. Drizzle with Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette and dig in!
