Broccoli Salad ~ broccoli, raisins, bacon and cheese!

This broccoli salad is one of my favorite salads.  I vary the dressing depending on my mood but it always has mayo, vinegar, and sugar to start.  This trio is perfect for salads, dressings, and dips ~ in fact it is the key to our slaw dressing.

Broccoli Salad

  • 8 o.z. broccoli florets
  • 1 o.z. shredded cheddar
  • 1/8 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/8 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/8 sugar
  • 2 strips bacon ~ cooked and cut into thin strips or crumbled

In small bowl combine mayo, vinegar, and sugar ~ you can vary the vinegar to your taste; rice wine is very mild (keep in mind a red or dark vinegar will discolor your salad ~ cider vinegar is a nice choice too).  Trim broccoli to bite size pieces add cheddar and raisins.  Pour dressings over top and stir in bacon; refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
