Broccoli, Bacon and Cheese Salad

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 5 mins

This is a delicious summer salad, however I make any time of the year. It is always a big hit with family, friends and at church functions. We love it. It is easily made as a lowfat version, using low fat cheese and low fat mayo, even can use Splenda instead of sugar. Serving size is 1/2 cup. I obtained this recipe from Pillsbury Simple Summer Recipes Cookbook in approximately 1990. This is my first post to Recipe Zaar. I really hope you enjoy it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix up your dressing ingredients and set aside.
  2. Mix all the dry salad ingredients (not the bacon) in a large salad bowl.
  3. Pour the dressing over the other salad ingredients, mix well.
  4. Mix in the bacon just before serving the salad.

This is a great salad. Lots of flavor. The only thing I changed was to use splenda for the sugar. Thanks Bobtail :) Made for PAC Spring 2012

Crunchy, cool , and tangy--I love it, and I normally don't care for broccoli. I've already had someone else ask me for the recipe!
