The entire time I've known my husband, he's never like broccoli. Until about two months ago when he ordered steamed broccoli as a side at a restraunt. Since then, he says he likes broccoli and asked me to make this salad because he was 'craving' it. Ha! So, we made it together!
2 bunches broccoli
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup red onion, chopped
1 pack bacon, cooked and crumbled
3/4-1 cup mayo (or Miracle Whip)
2/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons (or more) vinegar
Combine broccoli, cheese, onion, and bacon in bowl.
Mix mayo, sugar and vinegar in seperate bowl. Pour over broccoli mixture. Combine well and serve.
This is one of those recipes that I ask my mom to make when I go home to visit my parents. I don't know why I don't make it more myself because it's not hard to make, just a little labor intensive because of all the chopping involved. It's also a salad that everyone has their own recipe--some people add raisins or sunflower seeeds with various ingredients as the dressing. But this is what I grew up with so it's the variation that I like the most!
