Broccoli Salad

We go the the homestyle buffet at The Crossroads in Elmira occasionally and this is my favourite salad there. It can be made with broccoli and/or cauliflower. I have had it at potlucks where other additions such as raisins and sunflower seeds are included. Here is the basic recipe.

1 bunch of broccoli cut into small pieces
2-3 slices cooked bacon, finely chopped (we use bacon flavoured soy bits)
Grated cheddar cheese, about 2 ounces
Salad dressing or mayonnaise, 1/3 to 1/2 cup as desired
Sliced green onions

Mix together. Salad keeps for a couple of days.

Thank you for the recipes! We're always having treat days at work and I'm often looking for something new and different to bring. I get tired of the usual chips and dip stuff.

I have gathered a number of these recipes from potlucks at work. This salad is popular at our monthly lunches.
