BROCCOLI SALAD

As requested......

Broccoli Bacon Salad!!!


I have learned a little secret about this salad!!! When you only need a little like one serving for those of us "single" or "not everyone likes broccoli" meal preparation. You can make a small batch!!! This knowledge has set me free as I make single servings often..... Basically for every 1/2 cup mayo (can use lite) use 1-2 TB grated onion, 2 TB sugar, and 2 TB apple cider vinegar. Best if you make ahead of time so it can get all these good flavors mixing and dancing together.

Method behind my madness.....

I will buy the broccoli florets at C*ostc* or Sam's. So I grab a handful and chop into small bite size pieces. I fry up some bacon that I have also cut up before frying into a little bit crispy. I know others who just buy the pre-cooked bacon bits (Not bacono, please). How can you have anything good without some cheese???? I get the pre-grated for a quick fix Monterrey Jack cheese. You can use cheddar but Monterrey is the best for my taste buddies. It is all about proportions and likes.... If you like bacon.... add bacon if love cheese add more cheese...remember that this is a broccoli salad so do not forget some broccoli in you quest for the perfect taste satisfying mixing. Sometime I will add halved green or red seedless grapes, or shelled sunflower seeds...... Whatever you like to add, mix everything together just before you serve and poor over the dressing at the end..... You want it to SNAP with crunch and deliciousness......

Enjoy!!!
