I was given this recipe from my sister. She has made it a few times and I love it the more and more she makes it. Even though I have been married for almost 5 years this is 1 recipe I haven't gotten from her. I was determined to receive this recipe. I made it and it is DELICIOUS! I gave a baby shower for my dear friend Sarah over at High Heels and Grills this last Saturday. Everyone raved about this salad. I am pretty sure everyone there had at least 2 servings! It was so fun to see everyone enjoy the same thing! This is a wonderful salad for the any time of the year!! I can't wait to keep making it for parties and get-togethers all year long.
Broccoli & Bacon Salad
4 c. chopped broccoli florets
8-10 slices cooked bacon- diced
3/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 c. Light Mayo
(less than) 1/4 c. Sugar
2 T. White vinegar
Combine broccoli, bacon and cheddar cheese in a bowl. Combine mayo, sugar and vinegar in another bowl and pour over the broccoli and bacon mix. Refrigerate and serve. DELISH!
*I made this the night before the baby shower and it was perfect! It didn't change the texture of the salad at all! So this is GREAT to make ahead of time for parties or company.
*If you like onion this is optional. You can mince 1/4 of a red onion and put that in the salad. I am not a fan of the red onion so I don't put it in our salad. The choice is up to you!
