A simple, classic Broccoli Salad recipe that serves as a great fast side dish for any party or potluck. Made with bacon, cranberries, sunflower seeds, cheddar cheese and a homemade dressing, this is one of my favorite side dishes and it can be prepped in under fifteen minutes!
On Easter, We had a fantastic hot dog roast down at Utah Lake with the family!!! We love going to Utah lake because it’s only 10 minutes away from our house and in the spring there isn’t any bugs swarming around.
It was fun because everyone brought salads, side dishes and dessert. Lots of fun stuff to eat and enjoy. I love broccoli salad and when I go to Chuck a Rama, I always make sure I get a big spoonful of this goodness. This is a great addition to any family dinner or celebration!
