“This broccoli salad recipe is from my mother-in-law Martie and is always a crowd pleaser at family events and church picnics. The combination of bacon, cheese, and raisins gives it a sweet and salty taste.”
1 pound bacon
1 head broccoli, or more to taste
1 red onion, chopped
1 cup golden raisins
1 (8 ounce) package shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon white vinegar
Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Let cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes. Crumble into a small bowl.
Cut broccoli into florets, dice up the stems, and put all into a large bowl. Mix in onion. Add raisins and Cheddar cheese. Stir in crumbled bacon.
Combine mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar in a small bowl. Pour over broccoli mixture. Mix until completely covered. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
