Fresh Broccoli Salad


Fresh Broccoli Salad is creamy, salty, tangy, sweet, and absolutely delicious. My grandmother has been making this for holidays and family gatherings for as long as I can remember, and I've been addicted to it for a long time. Make this recipe to get your veggies into the most satisfying crowd!

Just like this easy grape salad, it's Easter fun. And if there's one way to get me to eat broccoli, it's this salad!

Danced with cheese, bacon, and a delicious mayonnaise sauce, this dish will turn you into a broccoli fan. OK, maybe you don't quite like broccoli, but I bet you'll love it in this salad!

And if the dressing on the salad makes your stomach happy, you should also make a seven-layer salad, which uses the same sauce

* Ingredients :

°  2 heads of broccoli (floral florets, cut into bite-size pieces (discard stems))
 ° 8 ounces bacon (cooked and coarsely chopped)
 ° 8 ounces cheddar cheese (diced into inch by inch pieces)
 ° 1 small onion (finely chopped)
° To garnish
 ° 1 Cup mayonnaise
 ° Semi a cup granulated sugar
 ° 3 tsps white vinegar

* Directions :

In a large bowl, combine broccoli, bacon, cheese, and onion.
In a medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar. Pour the sauce over the broccoli mixture and toss together until everything is evenly coated.

Broccoli salad can be served immediately, but it tastes better if you cover it and refrigerate it for 1 to 2 hours before serving. Leftover can be store in an secure container in fridge for up to 4 days.

** Recipe notes :
You should get about 7 cups of broccoli florets from the broccoli heads, which is roughly 28 ounces.
A great shortcut is to use packaged and prepared florets. You still need to chop some big pieces, but it saves a lot of time!
You can use white, yellow or red onions, whatever your preference.
There are many variations of broccoli salad, so feel free to add other ingredients based on your personal preference: dried cranberries, raisins, sunflower seeds, chopped pecans, etc.
You can make the following adjustments to the sauce: plain Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise, and honey instead of sugar. You can also use honey mustard sauce if you don't want a creamy dressing, sour cream, or a milk-based dressing if you want it creamy but not mayonnaise.

Enjoy !
