My high school friend Andrea invited our family over to watch some college football this past weekend and hang out with some other families. They made some great kabobs and everyone brought a side dish to share. One of the families brought a delicious Broccoli Salad.. Now, for those who know me, I can't stand to smell broccoli much less eat it. But let me tell you, this salad was fantastic. So thanks for the inspiration Melinda, here is my spin on Broccoli Salad.
2 heads of Broccoli
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 strips of cooked bacon cut into bite sized pieces
1 bottle of Sweet Vidalia Onion Salad Dressing ( I used Ken's brand)
Wash broccoli, chop into bite sized pieces and place in a large bowl. Add carrots, cheese and bacon. Pour entire bottle of Sweet Vidalia Onion salad dressing in bowl and toss into your broccoli. Place in a covered tupperware in the fridge until ready to serve. I would let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours so that the dressing can marry with the veggies, so this is a definite "do ahead" dish. :)
