The easy side salad is loaded with chopped broccoli, tender bacon, crisp red grapes, sweet craisins, sliced almonds, shredded cheddar cheese, diced red onion & homemade dressing!
The recipe can be made ahead of time as early as the day before. Saving time on party prep is never a bad thing. I actually prefer when the ingredients chill together longer & really get a chance to meld.
What better way to eat vegetables then with bacon & cheese in this classic summer salad! I guarantee this side dish gets polished off at your next party, potluck, or backyard BBQ!Print
