Broccoli salad, a recipe from my Aunt Ruth

broccoli salad
I’ve been on a broccoli kick lately. So I thought I would share this great recipe. I think I still make it pretty much the way I learned it from my Aunt Ruth. If you are reading this Aunt Ruth, thank you – this has been a perennial potluck favorite!

Broccoli Salad
florets from 2 crowns of broccoli
6 slices of very crispy bacon broken into bits
1 cup coarsely shredded cheddar cheese
a dash of lemon juice
a sprinkle of sugar
a dash of salt (optional)
mayonnaise to coat liberally

This is enough for 6 to 8 servings. It keeps well in the fridge, in fact I think it is even better the next day.
