Broccoli Salad


Part of Food Buzz 24, 24, 24: Cooking with Kids and the Farmer’s Market

This was originally a Neely recipe, but I changed it up jesssst a touch. I’m not a fan of overdoing it with cheese, but I’m sure that’s just me. This salad is a BIG hit at parties, but isn’t anything with bacon?

6 slices bacon
2 broccoli heads or 8 cups
1/2 red onion, sliced very thin
1/3 cup jack cheese, grated
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Fry your bacon, and let drain. Crumble into pieces and set aside.


Ready an ice bath. Cut the broccoli into florets. Blanch in boiling salted water very quickly, only about 20 seconds. Take them out and put them directly into the ice bath. This will stop the cooking and keep a nice bright green color. Drain well.

In a bowl, combine the cheese, mayo, sour cream, celery seed, salt and pepper.Fold in the broccoli. Then add the onion and the bacon. Fold together until everything is combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Chill in the fridge to let the flavors set until you are ready to serve.
