"If you like broccoli and bacon, this is something you have to try. My family loves this recipe. They make it whenever there are going to be guests. It tastes great and happens to be rather colorful."

bacon, cut into 1-inch square pieces
broccoli, cut into florets
red onion, chopped
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
This is one of my favorite quick salad recipes. I do cut the sugar back by half and I like to use white wine vinegar. This is also good with half mayonnaise/half sour cream. The longer this sits, the better it gets.
I'VE TRIED VARIOUS VERSIONS AND ONE DELETED THE SUGAR AND ADDED RAISINS AND SHREDDED CARROTS. TASTED YUMMY. THIS ONE IS GREAT WITH LESS SUGAR. I LIKE IT COLD BEFORE SERVING. WARM, NOT SO GREAT.
This was very good.. next time i think I will commit the cheese and use less onion
This was just ok for us. Being one of the first reviewers, I tried to follow the recipe to a "T", but had to make some adjustments to make it work. The amount of dressing wasn't enough, so I need to make about 1/2 more. I also prefer this w/much less sugar and more vinegar. It's a very basic broccoli salad and easy to adjust to your personal tastes, but as written it's a bit dry and sweet for me. THANKS, 1940's girl!
this is a nice recipe but a tad too sweet. next time I will add less sugar, like 1 TBSP, I increased the vinegar to a TBSP instead of a tsp and used white balsalmic instead of the white distilled and used half light mayo and half light sour cream.....
