Tempt My Tummy: Broccoli Salad

Blessed with Grace

I'm really hungry for this today... I think it's just one of those recipes that screams "SUMMER" to me. We'll be having this for supper tonight along with some cheap steaks... or maybe pork chops... or whatever I find a good deal on at the grocery store! ;)

Broccoli Salad
1 head broccoli, chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
(I prefer the Kraft crumbles if available- they seem to go better with the bulky veggies in this salad.)
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 red onion, chopped

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
In a small bowl (or large measuring cup) combine the following:

1 cup mayo (I almost always use fat-free.)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

Toss the salad with the dressing and chill until serving time.
