Our family was first introduced to Broccoli Salad when our Aunt Merie would make it and bring it to family reunions. She would bring the salad dressing in one container and the salad in another. She would mix the two together just before she served it. It became a favorite, especially to all of us girls. I am the only one who eats it at our house, so this time I decided to keep the salad dressing and salad separate. I put a serving of Broccoli Salad in a bowl and stir in the dressing.
Aunt Merie will be 80 in a few weeks. She is loved so much!
2 or 3 broccoli flowerets, chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2.8 oz. Hormel Real Bacon Pieces or 1 lb. cooked bacon, crumbled
1 medium purple onion, chopped
Combine all of the above together in a large bowl.
1/3 cup sugar
1 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 a couple of days.
