Broccoli & Bacon Salad

This salad is so delicious.  The combination of flavours and the dressing come together so beautifully.  Perfect for a braai!  Quite easy to throw together.  It's best if it can chill for a bit in the fridge, so I like that I can make it the day before or the morning of a party/braai, such less schlep and run-around later on!

Ingredients:
  • About 3 cups raw broccoli florets (I chop mine up into small bite-sizes and remove most of the stems)
  • Pack of diced bacon, cooked to your preference (I cook it through, them remove half the bacon, and cook the other half of the bacon crispy. Mmmm!)
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese, or cut into small squares
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced (this is optional)
Dressing:
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons castor sugar (sugar will do too)


Toss, cover, and chill!  Easy and yum!

Let me know if you try it, and what you think! :-)

    1. Mmm, nice idea to add sunflower seeds. Raisins would work too!
