Broccoli Salad


This salad is delicious.  It has a lot of good texture and good variety.  It is slightly sweet, tangy, and crunchy.  A sweetened dressing, bits of onion, bacon, and cheese blend together well to create a unique salad.

When I served this salad, there was some wonder as to whether people would like it.  However, after just one bite, my family loved it!

I am not a lover of raw onion, but in this salad, I like it – just make sure to dice the onion small.
