Here’s a broccoli salad recipe to add to the millions of others of broccoli salad recipes you can find online.
What sets this one apart? Homemade dressing! All the bacon! No raisins! Or craisins! My Mom’s recipe! All the bacon!
It’s one of the better fail-proof recipes I have in my custody that I am in LOVE with. So I thought I’d share it today with all of you wonderful readers. It’s easy, has a good crunch factor, has the right broccoli to bacon ratio plus that sweet dressing turns otherwise unassuming gross broccoli into magic.
