Broccoli bacon salad

*Tip: Divide in half or 1/3 for a smaller crowd or 4 people or less.

*Tip 2: Put on as much dressing as you’d like (you don’t need to use it all!) but save some in the fridge in case it dries out and you want extra.


3 heads of broccoli, rinsed and dried

1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

8 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

1/2 red onion, chopped

1 1/2 cup mayo

1/3 cup sugar

5 T. vinegar (I use cider vinegar)



Chop the broccoli into bite size pieces. In a large bowl, gently toss the broccoli, cheese, bacon, and onion.

In a small bowl, whisk the mayo, sugar, and vinegar. Adjust to taste.

Pour dressing over broccoli mixture and gently toss to combine.

Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
