Bodacious Broccoli Salad

    Newer Older

    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.
