This broccoli salad with bacon and cheese is requested at every family gathering. Let it be your next dish that they crave! I like this dish to be prepared at least two hours before serving. Be sure to have copies of the recipe on hand, as everyone will ask for it!

Stages of cooking

  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until crisp and evenly browned, 8-10 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and crumble when cool enough to handle.
  2. Combine bacon, broccoli, cheese, and onion in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk mayonnaise, red wine vinegar, sugar, pepper, salt, and lemon juice together in a small bowl; pour over salad and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
