  • 1 bunch broccoli about 4 cups, chopped small
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 ounces bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  • Chop broccoli and place in a large bowl. Add shredded cheese and crumbled cooked bacon. In a separate small bowl combine mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Stir until well combined.
  • Pour dressing over broccoli and stir. Serve immediately or refrigerate.


Bacon will soften after it's combined with broccoli and dressing. So if you're preparing it ahead of time I keep the bacon separate and sprinkle on just before serving
