Easy to Make Cold Broccoli Salad Recipe

For the past few years my daughter has been making this cold broccoli salad recipe and bringing it to all of our family get-togethers. Every time she brings it..every one raves about it. It's an easy-to-make recipe and uses fresh broccoli, most of the kids will eat this one too!

This is a great cold salad to serve at holiday meals, picnics, family reunions and all types of get-togethers. Once it has been prepared, refrigerate it for several hours (even overnight) before serving.

Cold Broccoli Salad Recipe

4-5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 heads fresh broccoli, chopped
1/4 cup fresh carrots, finely shredded
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 large red onion, chopped
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/8 cup granulated sugar
3/4 to 1 tsp. ground black pepper
3/4 to 1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

In a large mixing bowl combined together the freshly chopped broccoli, shredded carrots, shredded cheese, cooked & crumbled bacon and the chopped onion.

In a separate large mixing bowl whisk together the red wine vinegar, granulated sugar, ground black pepper, salt, low-fat mayonnaise and the fresh lemon juice until combined.

Pour the dressing that you just made into the first bowl, using a spoon to toss all of the ingredients together until blended. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 4-6 hours before serving.

I love fresh vegetable salad recipes. This one looks delicious. I would substitute all lemon juice since my husband usually has an allergic reaction to vinegar.
