Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Now I understand the reason behind the great reviews this recipe received. This salad is simply amazing. I am bringing it tomorrow, along with a pasta salad (photo coming tomorrow!) for our family easter feast. I think I am going to put a lock on the container so I don't eat the whole thing before tomorrow.


Here is the recipe:


Bodacious Broccoli Salad



Yields: 12 servings



8 slices bacon

2 heads fresh broccoli,


1 1/2 cups sharp Cheddar

cheese, shredded

1/2 large red onion, chopped

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1/8 cup white sugar

2 teaspoons ground black

pepper (I put 1 tsp)

1 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice



1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and crumble.

2. In a large bowl, combine broccoli, cheese, bacon and onion.

3. Prepare the dressing in a small bowl by whisking together the red wine vinegar, sugar, pepper, salt, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Combine dressing with salad. Cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
