There is always time for a fresh summer salad and we think this one is one of the top favorites for most people. It’s simple to make and budget-friendly so we know you will be excited to try it. This salad is a great way to get your family to eat broccoli and enjoy it while they do. This summer salad goes with just every occasion and it’s not just for summer!
Fresh Broccoli Salad – Our Favorite Summer Salad
2 heads of fresh broccoli – cut in bite-size pieces
1 red onion – chopped or diced
1/2 pound bacon – cooked & crumbled
3/4 cup raisins
1 cup shredded cheddar
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
Combine broccoli and onion with the bacon, raisins, and cheese & mix well. To prepare the dressing, mix the mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar together until smooth. Stir into the salad, let chill, and serve.
We also like to pair this summer salad with another favorite of ours – Rotini pasta salad.
