Broccoli Salad

As someone who has hated broccoli all of my life, it is funny that I am posting a Broccoli Salad recipe. That's because, this salad changed how I feel about Broccoli.  It is delicious and super easy to  make. This salad is a family favorite and great pot luck dish for large groups. 

Step 1

Cook the bacon until it is crisp.

Step 2

Grab a head of Broccoli in the produce department- Rise and cut apart.  I usually use the kitchen scissors for this because it is much easier than using a knife. I like to cut it into small bite size pieces.

Broccoli Salad

2 Heads of fresh broccoli (Uncooked)

2 oz package of sliced almonds-toasted

To toast the almonds, Heat oven to 250.  Spread the almonds onto a cookie sheet and toast slightly 3-5 minutes.  Watch them carefully-they burn quickly.  Cool before adding to salad.  (They can also be toasted in a toaster oven)

Place the above items in a large bowl and mix. 

Pour the dressing below over the top and stir

1 1/2 Cups Hellman's Mayonnaise (1 16 oz jar)
