bacon, or more to taste
fresh broccoli, diced
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
red onion, chopped
creamy salad dressing (such as Miracle Whip®)
I don't keep Miracle Whip in the house, I used Hellman's mayonnaise instead. This did need more mayonnaise than what was asked for. I cut the sugar way back to two tablespoons and I used white wine vinegar. Very simple side dish I could throw together before work. The longer this sits, the better it gets. Next time I will take the previous reviewer's suggestion and add sunflower seeds.
This is a very basic broccoli salad recipe. I ended up using prosciutto in place of bacon because I was making something for another recipe and had extra. I also like to add some sunflower seeds for even more crunch. THANKS for the recipe!
