How I love a good Broccoli Salad! I didn’t know it though, not for many, many years. You see I had tried broccoli salads and they always contained (ick) RAISINS! Now I’m not completely prejudiced against raisins. They have their proper place–covered in chocolate! But in a broccoli salad? No thank you! Here is my raisinless salad recipe. 🙂
8 oz bacon
5 cups small broccoli flowerets
1 Cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/3 Cup chopped onion
1/4 Cup sugar
1 Cup Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar
While bacon is cooking, mix the Mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar in large bowl. I usually just make it in the serving dish to save on dishes!
Stir in the broccoli, bacon, and cheese. Enjoy! I prefer to eat this right away. That way the bacon stays a bit crunchy, but most broccoli salad recipes I find say to refrigerate it for an hour or more before eating. I think it’s so much better fresh and crunchy. Is it just me or does bacon just make everything better? 🙂
How do you like your broccoli salad? Do you like the raisins in it? Have you ever had it without raisins?
