Broccoli salad and no bacon!

I had left over steamed broccoli from supper. So I mixed up a quick broccoli salad that can marinate in the fridge til tomorrow. Well I used the broccoli, half an onion from the fridge, 1/2 c celery, 1/2 red sweet pepper, some toasted almonds (instead of peanuts) , some dried cherries, a little mayonaise and a little sour cream, a little sugar and vinegar and then there was not any bacon to crumble in for that extra flavor. So I just put in a quarter teaspoon liquid smoke. You can't even tell there's no bacon. That stuff's a miracle sometimes.
Often I put it in some pork barbeque that I haven't cooked over the grill and it fools everyone. If you don't have that in the cupboard, get yourself a little bottle.

try adding a bit of shredded aged cheddar cheese, or a smoked cheese, for extra flavor

The cheese is a good idea, and I have a bottle of smoke in the fridge, love the stuff!
