This is a great salad for picnics or potlucks! This version of broccoli salad uses more vinegar and less mayonnaise than most recipes. This gives you a slightly different, healthier option when choosing your next side dish. It's best if you wait until right before serving to add the dressing to keep bacon crisp.

I followed the recipe exactly. Look it to a family BBQ and everybody raved on how good it tasted. I will definitely make this again. Maybe next time I will add some halved cherry or grape tomatoes and feta cheese to give it a little Mediterranean flare.

Very good! I liked that this used less mayo (I used Hellmann's light mayo). I also used less bacon than called for just to keep it a little lighter. Made earlier in the day and kept in the fridge until ready to serve. I would make this again! Thanks for sharing.:)
