Broccoli Salad Recipe: With Bacon and Cheese!! How To Make Easy Raw Broccoli Salad: Recipes, Videos & Ingredients http://www.DishinWithDi.com Colorful Broccoli Salad with bacon, Cranberries/Craisins and cheese! Can be made ahead! Quick and easy side dish recipe for any holiday, but perfect for Summer! This recipe for broccoli salad couldn’t be easier! The dressing for broccoli salad is made with mayonnaise/mayo, sugar, vinegar, and fresh ground black pepper. It’s a sweet dressing, that goes perfectly with the salty bacon. It’s actually very similar coleslaw dressing or dressing for macaroni salad. You can use a fat free or light mayo to make this a more healthy recipe. Fresh broccoli florets are used not frozen, as they would become soggy. There’s also no need to cook the broccoli, since this is a raw salad. I cut the tops from the broccoli and put the stem in the freezer to save for broccoli soup. The broccoli is placed in an extra large bowl and some tasty ingredients are added: cheddar cheese cut into small cubes, crumbled fresh cooked crispy bacon, minced red onion, sliced almonds and dried cranberries (known as craisins). I use the craisins, rather than making the salad with raisins, because I like their tart/sweet flavor and the color they add to the salad. I love colorful Summer salads and side dishes and this one looks beautiful! Green, red, orange and flicks of lightness from the onions and almonds and then the creamy dressing coating it all makes your mouth water and also make you want to get the amera out! This salad is also served for Easter with ham and for other holidays or gatherings, since it’s one of my sons’ and husband’s favorites. Back to the craisins! I soak them in hot water to make make them pump and juicy. I prefer the dried to fresh cranberries, simply because I usually have them on hand. Into the big bowl, all of the ingredients are simply tossed together. This salad should be made in advance, to let the ingredients mingle. I usually make it one day before serving and then cover and refrigerate. When you’re ready to serve, just toss everything around a bit at set it on the table! Goes perfectly with my Brown Sugar BBQ Chicken and Classic Macaroni Salad!
