Broccoli Salad

When my Mother's family gathered for the King Family reunion at my parent's house in Tallahassee, we loved for our Aunt Merie to bring her Broccoli Salad.  She would bring the dressing for the salad and combine it with the other ingredients right before she served it.  I didn't even know that I liked fresh broccoli until I tried this salad!   It's delicious as a side dish with ham.  My daughter-in-law, Joy, really like this salad and says her Dad always wants her to make this recipe for special occasions with her Mom and Dad.

                                                            Broccoli Salad

2 or 3 broccoli flowerets, chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2.8 oz. Hormel Real Bacon Pieces or l lb. cooked bacon, crumbled
l medium purple onion, chopped

Combine all of the above in a large bowl. 

Dressing:

l/3 cup sugar
l cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. white vinegar

Stir dressing ingredients together.  You may keep the dressing separate from the salad and combine all together right before you serve the Broccoli Salad or combine dressing and salad and place in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve the salad.  This salad will keep in the refrigerator for several days.
