Bodacious Broccoli Salad


  • 8 slices bacon
  • 2 heads fresh broccoli, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 large red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/8 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and crumble.
  2. In a large bowl, combine broccoli, cheese, bacon and onion.
  3. Prepare the dressing in a small bowl by whisking together the red wine vinegar, sugar, pepper, salt, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Combine dressing with salad. Cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

I had something similar to this at a friend's housewarming party. I loved it so very much, I found this recipe for our own housewarming party. I completely loved it and it was so so easy. I used bacon bits and I was out of lemon juice, so I tried lime juice. Both of them worked well as substitutions!

This is such an easy recipe, and it's one of those that lends itself well to not measuring. A little of this, a little of that and it tastes great!
