Broccoli Bacon Salad
Once in a while I need to eat my vegetables with some pizazz :) I got this recipe from a family member of mine, and it is SO good! This salad makes me want to eat my broccoli. If you need a delicious vegetable or salad to go on the side of any meal, this one is definitely a good choice :) Enjoy!
8 slices bacon, cooked
4 heads broccoli, chopped
1/2 cup fresh parmesan cheese, shredded
1/2 cup craisins or raisins (optional)
1/2 large red onion, chopped (optional)
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2/3 cup mayo
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 cup white sugar
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
1. Crumble the bacon into small pieces. Combine bacon, broccoli, cheese, and onion in a large bowl.
2. In a small bowl, combine sauce ingredients. Toss sauce with salad until mixed well.
3. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Add craisins right before serving.
*Hint: If you are planning on having this salad a while after you make it, it doesn't keep very well in the fridge. I would wait to mix the dressing in with the rest of the salad until ready to serve.
