The other night we had Crockpot Italian Beef Sandwiches (I LOVE that dinner) and to go along with it I decided to make this salad. The recipe if from The Neeleys on the Food Network and it's really good.
6 slices bacon, cooked crisply and chopped up
2-3 heads of broccoli or 8 cups
1/2 red onion, sliced thin
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
salt and pepper
Cut broccoli into florets. Blanch broccoli in boiling salted water until barely tender (about a minute). Shock them in a bowl of ice water (helps them keep their nice green color). Drain and set aside.
Combine mayo, sour cream, and celery seed. In a bowl combine broccoli, onion, and shredded cheese. Add mayo mixture and toss. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
