Easy Broccoli Salad

Made this for a class a couple of days ago and making it for dinner tomorrow. One of my favorites. Some people add cheese- I do sometimes. The secret is to steam the broccoli just a little so it still has some crunch, but is not totally raw or overcooked and mushy. If you haven’t made it before I encourage you to make broccoli salad soon. 


Broccoli Salad

4-6 c. broccoli flowerets

1 can water chestnuts, drained and chopped

4-5 slices bacon chopped, cooked crisp and drained

about 2/3 c. mayo or salad dressing, or to taste

salt and pepper to taste

1 sweet red pepper, seeded and diced, optional


Cook broccoli until tender/crisp. Cool and combine with remaining ingredients. I like to add the diced pepper closer to serving time as it can make the salad runny if added too soon. Chill. Serves 4-6.
