This salad has everything going on.  Crunchy broccoli, salty bacon, sharp cheese and the creamy, dreamy dressing.  Pile it high in the bowl because this stuff seems to fly off the table.

Expert Tips

 
  • Add Crunch: Sunflower seeds or crushed walnuts add a nice crunch to the veggies.
  • Short cut tip: Precut bagged broccoli can be used to save time.
  • Variations: Raisins or dried cranberries or even grapes can be used to add a sweet taste.
  • Alternate ingredient: Cauliflower can be added to the salad for color and flavor.
  • Alternate cooking method tip: Par boil the broccoli in a pot with a little salt and then blanch for a softer broccoli for the salad.
  • Dietary consideration tip: Plain greek yogurt can replace the mayo.
