Stephanie’s Broccoli Salad

Every year for Easter, one of our neighbors always makes this tasty broccoli salad. Since I couldn’t be home for Easter this year, she was kind enough to share the recipe. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Stephanie’s Broccoli Salad

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider or rice wine vinegar
  • 1 or 2 heads of broccoli (depending on # of people)
  • 6-8 pieces of bacon
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Prepare the dressing at least a few hours ahead of time. The flavors need time to blend, and the sugar needs to melt so that it’s smooth, not gritty.  Mix: mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar.

Cut flowerets into bite-size pieces & discard stems.  Fry bacon so they are crispy, not chewy. Tear into small pieces.

Just before serving: mix the broccoli, bacon, red onion, raisins, shredded cheddar cheese and the dressing.
