Salty, Savory Sweet Broccoli Salad

Salty, Savory Sweet Broccoli Salad

My family loves this salad. Its wonderful by itself, but we usually serve it as a side dish. My little uncle, Thomas, calls it, "grass grazing good." He waits until the entire family has prepared their plates and takes the bowl of what's left. This recipe was a little strange to them,
at first, but its love at first bite.


1 lb bacon (fried and drained)
8 cups of broccoli florets
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of crushed pineapple (drained)
1/2 cup of golden raisins
1/3 cup of finely chopped onion
1 cup of mayonnaise
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
In a large bowl, toss broccoli, cheese, onions, and raisins together. Crumble bacon over broccoli mixture. Pour pineapples in mixture and toss.
In a small bowl, mix mayo, sugar and vinegar. When all ingredients are mixed well, pour over broccoli mixture, and stir.
Refrigerate over night. Stir well before serving.
