Broccoli Salad

This is one of my favorite summer salads. I love the sweet and tangy dressing. Unfortunately I don't make it often because of all of the cheese and bacon. It's a nice change from heavy potato and pasta salads though. This recipe is great using Splenda instead of sugar.

Broccoli Salad



  • 2 large bunches raw broccoli, cut into flowerets
  • 1 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 c. grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1 c. mayonnaise


  • Mix mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar together.
  • Add onion, bacon and cheese.
  • Pour over broccoli in a bowl. Stir until broccoli is lightly coated.
  • Chill for a few hours, or overnight.
