Broccoli Bacon Salad is another family favorite-we. have a lot of those! My good friend introduced this salad to me many years ago. I changed it a little bit to meet my family’s likes. It is crunchy and very flavorful. I hope your family enjoys it as much as ours does.
This salad is so easy to put together. I can easily make this before work and it is chilled and ready to eat when we all get home. We eat this a lot as a main dish. We serve it with a delicious bread and a beverage for a complete meal.
