How To Make midwest broccoli salad

  • 1
    Note: This recipe has to be made the day before serving. Cook Bacon until crisp. Chop and set aside.

    I break up the broccoli the day before since this is the step that takes the longest. I actually do this while watching tv. Break the florets into small pieces and cut the stems small since the broccoli is eaten raw.
