Colorful Broccoli Salad

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Nicole Brummett

This is an easy, & fun salad to make. Also an easy one for kids to make or help with. This looks great on the table--everyone loves it. Prep time depends on if you cook bacon or use jar. I used the prep time for making this with the jar. Also, the cook time is really the chill time.

This broccoli salad was soooo delicious!!!! I just didnt add pepper or bacon, but used dried crannberries, and it got all eaten up. Thank you!! :)
