Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked crisp and broken into pieces
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 1/2 bunches of broccoli, broken into small flowerets
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup seedless red grapes, sliced down the middle
  • 1 cup sliced or slivered almonds
  • Dressing:

  • 1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar, or a touch more if you think you need it
  • 1/4 cup sugar or equivalent amount of sugar substitute

Method

Step 1

Mix all salad ingredients together. Mix dressing ingredients. Pour dressing over salad and mix well. Chill. This bacon broccoli salad recipe tastes even better if left in the fridge overnight to let the flavours blend.

Variations:

  • Make this broccoli bacon salad a lower fat salad by substituting low fat mayonnaise or salad dressing. Or try it with yogurt.
  • Omit the bacon for a vegetarian salad.
  • Add color and extra nutrition with chopped carrots.
  • The grapes are optional but look and taste great.

Broccoli is not only a tasty vegetable. It’s also one that we should include in our diet on a regular basis. This recipe is a delicious way to do it.

The grapes add a nice sweetness that goes surprisingly well with the broccoli and bacon. The sliced almonds add a wonderful crunch to the salad.
