Broccoli salad is such an easy dish to make. It’s perfect as a side dish for summer BBQ,s, it’s ideal for potlucks (you will come home with an empty bowl!), and you can make it up to a day ahead of time.
It’s a favorite side dish in my house no matter what I serve it with.
8 cups of broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
1 cup green grapes, quartered lengthwise
1/2 cup bacon bits
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup cranberries
1/2 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or marble)
3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp sugar or sugar substitute
1 cup mayonnaise (I use half fat mayo)
Salt and pepper to taste
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, combine broccoli, grapes, sunflower seeds, cranberries, cheese and bacon bits.
Pour the prepared dressing over and mix well.
Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
