Fresh Food Friday Mom’s Broccoli Salad


These last few hot and humid late spring days, have me wanting to make light and refreshing meals for dinner. When it’s too hot to cook in the kitchen, I will throw marinated chicken breasts, sirloin steaks or pork chops on the charcoal grill. I like to serve it with this easy Broccoli Salad made from a recipe my mother gave me. It’s best to make it the night before so all the flavors have a chance to soak in.

Mom’s Broccoli Salad

  • 1 bunch broccoli (chopped raw)
  • 1 red onion (chopped)
  • 16 ozs. bacon (cooked and chopped)


  • 1 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 2 T. vinegar

Mix the broccoli, onion and bacon together in a large bowl. Whisk the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar together in a small bowl, then toss it over the broccoli mixture. I sometime use cauliflower and broccoli in the mixture. Refrigerate overnight. This is also a good salad to take to a potluck or family picnic.
