We make this a lot for summer BBQs, but it's good any time of the year. Makes a fairly large batch.

Super easy and tasty, this broccoli salad is going to be a bit hit at summer cookouts. It's a classic summer salad but can be enjoyed any time of the year. Bits of crumbled bacon adds a smoky flavor. Bacon, along with shredded cheese, adds just the right amount of saltiness. The savory touches are a delicious contrast with the slightly sweet dressing.

How To Make broccoli salad
Test Kitchen Tips
The directions say to mix the dressing in a jar, but we used a bowl. The mixture was pretty thick and we found this easier to incorporate ingredients.
1Mix broccoli, bacon, onion, and cheese together in a salad bowl.
2In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine 1 c mayo, vinegar, and sugar. I use a bit less sugar. Shake well in the jar to combine and then refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
3Pour dressing over salad.
4Toss to coat just before serving.
