Bodacious Broccoli Salad

by Divine Domesticity on November 15th, 2008


I can't rave enough about this delicious broccoli salad. It is completely bad to the bone -- in a good way.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad
Makes 12 servings

8 slices bacon (I have used good quality pre-cooked bacon pieces with great success)
2 heads fresh broccoli, chopped
1 1/2 cups sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 large red onion, finely diced
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/8 cup white sugar
1-2 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.
