Broccoli Salad

This is a perfect recipe for your next cookout! My family and I grilled out Friday night and had Broccoli Salad as a side with our burgers. We all devoured it! It's much better after it marinates, so be sure to refrigerate for a few hours before serving.

8 slices of bacon
2 heads of fresh broccoli, chopped
1 1/2 c. sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 large red onion, chopped
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
1/8 c. white sugar
2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
2/3 c. mayo
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 handfuls dried cranberries, or raisins if you prefer them

On medium heat, fry bacon in skillet until brown on both sides. Set bacon aside on a plate covered with a paper towel to cool and drain.

In a large bowl, stir together broccoli, cheese, onion and cranberries or raisins.

In a small bowl, prepare the dressing by whisking together red whine vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, mayo and lemon juice.

Pour over broccoli mixture and combine. Once bacon has cooled, crumble it into the salad. Stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
