Broccoli Salad

Our aunt Kathleen never failed to bring this anytime we were having a salad supper at Grandma’s house, and we never failed to devour it. Even as small children. And the main ingredient is broccoli.  Enough said. 🙂

Salad Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of bacon, crumbled into very small pieces (homemade bacon bits)
  • 4 cups of small florets of broccoli (fresh – about 2 sm. heads)
  • 3/4 c. sharp cheddar, shredded (don’t get the finely shredded cheese, as pieces won’t be substantive enough to taste well in the mix)*
  • ¼- ½ large red onion, diced (depending on preference – I do ½ c.)

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c. Miracle Whip*
  • 1 1/2 T. sugar
  • 2 T. white vinegar 
  • A dash of salt

*For the WW version if this recipe, use Miracle Whip Light and low fat cheddar. All other ingredients and quantities are the same.

Instructions: 

Cook bacon until nice and crispy; drain, cool, and crumble.

In a large bowl, combine broccoli florets, cheddar, red onion, and bacon. Set aside.

To make dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together Miracle whip, sugar, vinegar, and salt until sugar is dissolved well, and it’s evenly combined.

Pour dressing over salad and gently toss to coat salad evenly.

WW Freestyle Info.: Makes about 1 pound of salad – about 10 half-cup servings, 2 points per serving.
