Broccoli Bacon Salad

Here is a great summer side dish that is always popular at pot luck gatherings.  I cut it down to a reasonable size for a family dinner today.

Broccoli Bacon Salad
  • 2 cups broccoli crowns, chopped
  • 1/2 medium red onion, chopped
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup roasted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • Bacon vinaigrette dressing
  • 1/2 cup light olive oil mayo (or just mayo)
Prepare all ingredients and fold together.  Make it ahead to give the flavors time to marry.  I didn’t have any Bacon Vinaigrette on hand so I made a dressing to use in it’s place.
Bacon Vinaigrette dressing:
  • 1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 C sugar
  • Bacon drippings I had from baking a package of bacon.
Whisk together and heat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes to dissolve sugar.  Whisk and pour over broccoli salad.
