Broccoli Salad

Kim Biegacki


I have made this salad many times and it disappears quickly. It is super easy to make and tasty too. Because it is so simple is the reason I think it goes over so well. Nobody's wondering what is in the salad as there is only 4 ingredients. If you are craving broccoli, love bacon and cheddar cheese this will hit the spot every time.
I got this recipe years ago from a lady that I worked with. Everytime she brought this salad in for a party it was the first to disappear.

Hope you enjoy. When I make it again I will post a pic.
