Broccoli, Bacon and Cheese Salad

 Good morning ! Happy Sunday!
Today is our middle Grandson's 3rd birthday .. and I am bringing one of our family's favorite salads to the party !
There are lots of versions of this broccoli salad and this is mine .. I first had this salad a few years ago at my sister in law in Connecticut's house and came home and searched for the recipe..
Here is how I make mine.. You will need :
Broccoli Bacon Cheese Salad

2 heads of fresh broccoli ( I use stems and all ..Just cut off the very bottoms)
1 cup of mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups shredded Colby jack cheese
1 pound bacon cooked crispy and crumbled
 Mix the mayo, vinegar and sugar in a bowl ( I do mine right in the serving bowl) Then add the chopped broccoli..get that all mixed in the dressing.
 Add the shredded cheese
 and the bacon .. Refrigerate a couple hours to get the flavors to mix .. Hope you try this ..it is super easy and so good!
I can't believe this guy is 3 today .. He is so fun and just a joy!
I have been working on my daughters granny square blanket ( a little)
Made some chocolate covered strawberries ..drizzled with white chocolate..
and made Bretton's Birthday cookies!

I might actually eat broccoli when it's hidden in mayonnaise, bacon, and cheese :) Will definitely give it a try! Thanks for the recipe...
