ImageI serve my family a green salad with dinner almost every night. And despite all the tweakings, it gets old. So, to change it up a bit, I sometimes serve a broccoli salad. And normally, I completely detest raw broccoli, but for some reason, I love it here. 

Here goes:

1 head broccoli, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces

2-3 pieces of bacon cooked crispy and chopped

1 handful of red grapes, cut in half

1/4-1/2 cup of red onion, chopped

1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

sliced almonds if you so wish (not pictured above but delicious, nonetheless)

1/2 cup mayo

2-3 tbsp vinegar (I used apple cider but white works great, too)

1 tbsp sugar

Combine and chill. You can eat it within an hour or two or wait until the next day or so. It’s good. We had it last with a spicy grilled tri tip but I’m thinking of adding it next time to a roasted pork loin. Yum.
