This is my version of the yummy salad I ALWAYS get at Sweet Tomatoes restaurant. It's so crunchy and light, it's perfect for a snack or as a side dish at a BBQ. I make it up ahead and snack on it all week for lunch. YUM!

How to Make Teresa's Broccoli Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Dice bacon, cook and drain. **TIP** I find it easiest to freeze bacon, cut package in half, and then slice across the strips of bacon to make long frozen diced strips. As they cook, you can separate them easily. See photo*
  2. Combine all your salad ingredients in a bowl with a lid.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine your sauce ingredients. If necessary, you can add a little more vinegar or sugar until the taste suits you. Pour as much as you need onto your salad ingredients, lock on lid and shake to combine. refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
  4. **Tip** You may not need all your dressing. I like to reserve a couple tablespoons of sauce to add right before serving and give it a quick toss to incorporate.
