Broccoli Salad

I was blessed with a very nice baby shower in August. My wonderful cousin planned the food, and everyone really enjoyed this recipe. In order to save time we used microwavable bacon, prepared the salad the night before, and refrigerated it overnight. This would make a great side dish for a potluck or summer barbecue. Hope you enjoy!


1 large head broccoli
6 to 8 slices of bacon, crumbled
1/2 c chopped red onioin
1/2 c raisins
8 oz sharp cheddar, shredded
1 c mayo
2 tbsp white vinegar
1/4 c sugar
1/2 c cherry tomatoes, halved
salt and pepper to taste


Mix broccoli, bacon, onion, raisins, cheese, and tomatoes in large bowl.
Mix mayo, vinegar, and sugar in a small bowl, and stir into large bowl to coat ingredients.
