Amish Broccoli Salad

There is nothing quite like a delicious broccoli salad! It allows for a crispy, refreshing salad that goes with anything and is so easy to put together. If you live in certain areas of the world, you will see that broccoli is a fantastic, popular vegetable but also one very common in salads.

This recipe is my gift to you when it comes to finding the absolute perfect broccoli salad. Full of delicious flavor, farm fresh greens, and a flare for the classic goodness that is a salad—you will save this one for sure to make again!

CRISP AND FRESH BROCCOLI

This salad is a hit with my tastebuds because it surprises with how it unites sweetness and delectable flavors. It is even a salad that holds up well for a few days if you have leftovers, want to make it ahead, and so on. I believe this salad is even more amazing the next day. There is just something about flavors bonding together overnight in the fridge! SO, if can, give it a go the day before you plan to eat it and see what I mean. Give it a try and be amazed!

I particularly enjoy this broccoli salad as a summer dish. It gets the taste buds going while also cools me off from the humidity. However, it also makes a great side dish for the fall, holidays, and all days in between. I also really enjoy the bacon flavor in this one as it compliments and seasons the broccoli. While it’s an exciting salad, it also has a fresh flavor that reminds me of slow and easy living and farm and country life. With the cream, cheese, bacon, and mayo—it can be a meal all its own too!

I have taken this dish on picnics, to gatherings, potlucks, etc. It is so classic but exciting that it just fits in everywhere. If you have ever been to the countryside cafes, or a small-town restaurant, you will notice a difference in their vegetables and dishes. This dish reminds me of those places with the simple and delectable flavors. The flavors immerse so well with one another you forget any ingredient is separate and even exist alone outside of this dish. If that sounds romantic, it’s because I am in love with this dish. You will be too!

This salad also comes with character witnesses as all my friends and family love it too. I get phone calls before a get together with people saying, “You’re making the broccoli salad, right?” Everyone loves the hearty flavors, the surprise bacon crunch, and the surprising, sweet undertones.
