Bodacious Broccoli Salad

I had this salad years ago in an Italian restaurant and have been looking for the recipe. It's simply delicious!

Make at least 2 hours in advance to allow flavors to meld.

Recipe Ingredients

8 slices bacon
2 heads fresh broccoli, chopped
1 1/2 cups sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 large red onion, chopped
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Method

  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and crumble.
  2. In a large bowl, combine broccoli, cheese, bacon and onion.
  3. Prepare the dressing in a small bowl by whisking together the red wine vinegar, sugar, pepper, salt, mayonnaise and lemon juice.
  4. Combine dressing with salad. Cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

12 servings
