Broccoli Salad

Everyone has a recipe for broccoli salad that they love, you probably even have a few go to ones.  This is another mighty fine one and super easy.  It was originally form 6 sisters but I adapted it to fit our families taste.

Make the dressing first.

Broccoli Salad Dressing:

1 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl mix all ingredients well to dissolve sugar.  Chill dressing for at least one hour. 

While that is chilling cook the bacon.  This is one thing I changed from the original recipe I made it a pound because my husband loves bacon. Like I said earlier you can adjust amounts to fit your family, add or take out ingredients too.

Then chop up the remaining ingredients for the salad.  When the dressing is ready add the salad ingredients to it mix thouroughly.  I like to sprinkle a few crispy fried onions on top of each bowl, but don't mix them into the salad or they will no longer be crispy.  And enjoy.

Broccoli Salad:

1 pound fresh broccoli (about 2 bunches) cut into small florets
1 half medium red onion
1 cup grated cheese
1 pound of bacon (cooked crisp and crumbled)
3/4 cup craisins

crispy fried onions for topping
Get ready for your family to eat bowls of it.
