Homemade Broccoli Salad Recipe

We love broccoli, especially fresh broccoli and have been trying to incorporate more of this healthy green vegetable into our weekly diet. This particular recipe is one of our favorites and was given to me a few years ago by my great auntie who was known to be a fabulous cook.

Homemade Broccoli Salad Recipe

1 bunch fresh broccoli, chopped
1/2 lb. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 lb. bacon, cooked & crumbled
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 cup salad dressing
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp. white vinegar

In a large bowl combine together the fresh broccoli, mozzarella cheese, crumbled bacon and chopped red onion. In a separate bowl combine together the salad dressing, granulated sugar and white vinegar. Pour dressing into the broccoli bowl and toss gently with a spoon until all of the broccoli is coated. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours to allow flavors to infuse. Best if served chilled.
