A simple salad, easy to make and quick. Unlike potato salad or macaroni salad where there is cooking involved.
I am sure that there are many different variations of making broccoli salad,
the ingredients I use (most of the time):
fresh broccoli cut in bite size pieces,
real bacon bits,
shredded sharp cheddar cheese,
a little sugar,
and light mayonnaise.
I try to use the bacon bits that have no nitrates or nitrites in them. Also, another variation I’ve seen is small cubed ham instead of bacon.
This salad is good as a main lunch dish with a side of fruit, I like grapes with mine. The cold drink is Black Cherry lemonade (Country Time)…
