Broccoli Salad

Bacon and Broccoli Salad

This delicious Broccoli Salad is very simple to prepare, and it’s loaded with flavors.  It’s a perfect side dish for grilled meats, and it’s a great alternative to potato or macaroni salad.  Once you taste Broccoli Salad, you will wonder why you would ever want to eat any other salad.  It’s that good, or maybe, I’m just really in love with it. 

The first time that I tasted Broccoli Salad was at a pot luck dinner party several years ago.   I can honestly tell you that it was love at first bite.  I pleaded for the recipe, but when I finally received it, I was disappointed.  I didn’t think that the written recipe produced the same delicious combination of flavors that I had experienced, so I spent the next several months perfecting the recipe for Broccoli Salad until it tasted just right.Broccoli SaladGive our recipe for Broccoli Salad a try and let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
