This was a simply delicious and easy salad. As most of you know I go to the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings and stock up for the week. The broccoli was looking especially yummy so brought some home and looked through my cookbooks until I found this recipe. It is definitely a keeper. The recipe is in the Creme de Colorado cookbook. This one was published in 1987. The books are written by the Junior League of Denver. They are always coming out with a new one and I of course have several.
Surprising Broccoli Salad (from the Creme de Colorado cookbook)
3 cups broccoli flowerets
6 slices bacon, fried crisp, drained and crumbled
1 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
2 T white vinegar
1/3 sup sugar
Cut flowerets off broccoli stalks. Toss together broccoli flowerets, bacon, onion and cheese. Combine dressing ingredients and mix well. Pour dressing over salad and toss thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Quick, easy and delicious. Salad will keep several days refrigerated in a tightly sealed container.
