Amish Broccoli Salad

P1090036-001I love broccoli Salad!! It is one of my favorite things to make at parties or church pot lucks and is always a huge hit. I have my own recipe I use of course, but I came across this wonderful delight on Facebook and decided to share it with  you all because it tasted so good. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to leave a comment or tip in the comment section below.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb chopped broccoli
  • 1 lb chopped cauliflower (chopped into very small chunks)
  • 1/lb bacon, fried and crumbled  (about 7 slices) This can be optional if you don;t like meat.
  • 2 cups grated Smoked Gouda or Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar OR to make it diabetic friendly you can use Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal 1/cup sugar
    (this is optional…but the sweet taste is popular in this)
  • 1/tsp salt, OR to taste

Directions:

  1. In large salad bowl, combine broccoli, cauliflower, bacon and 11/cups Smoked Gouda or Cheddar cheese.
  2. In medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar or liquid sweetener and salt.
  3. Stir the creamy mixture into the broccoli salad.
  4. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.
  5. Cover the salad bowl with plastic wrap and chill before serving.

Variations:

  • Leave out the cauliflower and use only broccoli.
  • Add some chopped or sliced red onions.
  • Replace the cauliflower with diced cooked chicken.
  • Maybe add in some chopped, hard boiled eggs.

It really is that simple….no cooking!!
