This is a Really Good simple broccoli salad. My middle SIL made this for a Memorial Day cook-out, and everyone asked for the recipe. This is also nice to make when you don't have much time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 3 ingredients.
  2. Put cheese and dressing on right before serving.
  3. The easiest way to make the dressing is to mix it in a shaker.
  4. Personally, I would add less sugar to this, I'd start with 1 c sugar and then add up to 1/2 c more, according to how sweet you like your dressing.
  5. My mom thought it was fine as is.

What a great salad! I particularly like the bacon and cheddar cheese combination with the broccoli!!! For the dressing, I used mayo instead of Miracle Whip and cut the sugar down to 1 cup as you mentioned which worked out perfectly for us. The dressing was a perfect compliment for this salad. Thank you so much! :-)

I made this for our game night over the weekend. I used Miracle Whip and followed the recipe exactly. It was sweet, but everyone loved it and one person took some home with her. Next time, I will cut back on the sugar, but wanted to try as is first. Thank you for a great, simple to make broccoli salad!
