Broccoli, Bacon, and Cheddar Salad

I had to bring something to our potluck at work and thought this recipe would be perfect. It’s from the Farmer’s Family Cookbook by his (our) cousin Marissa and it is oh so yummy! It’s fairly healthy too! You use light mayo, so that’s a plus and I’m thinking you could even leave out the bacon and maybe add some nuts if you wanted! Anyway here is the official recipe!

3 cups of fresh broccoli florets (That is my favorite cooking term..floret!!)
½ cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup of raisins
¼ cup of chopped red onion
4 slices of precooked bacon or 1/3 a cup of real bacon pieces

½ cup of fat-free mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. of sugar (you could use splenda!)
2 tsp lemon juice
In a large bowl, combine all the salad ingredients. In a small bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients and mix well. Pour dressing over salad and toss gently to coat. I think it gets better the longer it sits in the fridge!! Enjoy :)
