Surprising Broccoli Salad

3-4 Bunches of fresh broccolli crowns, cleaned and cut to bite size
1 package of crisp bacon, crumbled (can use the already cooked)
1 small purple onion (chopped)
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

Mix all together.

Dressing:
2 cup of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of white vinegar
1/4 cup of white granulated sugar
mix together and pour onto the salad and mix well.

Refrigerate for about an hour.
This recipe can be multiplied many times. If too dry, you can mix a little more of the dressing.

I never leave a party, that I bring this to, with leftovers.
I get request for it all the time at family functions.

Texas,
this looks great...I love broccoli and this salad is almost like one I buy st fantastic little deli..The only difference being is that they add sunflower seeds...I've tried making the dressing, but haven't hit on the right stuff...But your dressing looks like the right thing..Thanks so much.

My SIL made something very similar except she used half broccoli and half cauliflower spring onions for the red onion. Made sure they were very small flowerettes and cut the mayo way down when she was dieting - like to about 3 TBS and would mix and mix and mix and mix until everything was coated and oddly enough it was.

Thanks for reminding me of this - it's a great summer dish.

Sounds like a great salad - I can't wait to try it!

Don't forget to toast lightly the sunflower seeds in a non-stick pan, the toasting really brings out the flavour!

I've seen it with raisins too and thought that was so strange, but it was very good.
