Broccoli salad

Broccoli Salad

I guess everyone has a version of this salad, but it’s so good that I figured I’d share mine.  We love this stuff, but what’s not to love?  It’s got crunch, a sweet/salty flavor, and bacon.  I also like to think it’s at least a little bit good for me.  Yea, yea, I know the broccoli would be better for me all on its own, but I can’t help it… it just tastes better this way.

Recipe:  Broccoli Salad

3 bunches of broccoli florets, cut into small pieces

12 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese (or shredded mozzarella cheese)

1 red onion, diced

1 lb. crisp bacon, crumbled

Dressing:

1 1/2 c. Miracle Whip (not mayonnaise)

1/2 c. granulated sugar

3 Tbsp. white vinegar

Combine dressing ingredients in large bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and stir/toss to thoroughly coat.  Chill.

    It is so much better slathered in mayo with all the goodness of bacon. Can’t say I’ve ever had cheese inmine, but this looks quite tasty!
