Dot’s Broccoli Salad

Dot is a distant cousin of mine, who as a small child lived in the same fishing village as I did. Our mothers knew each other, but her and I were both very young, when Dot’s mother moved along with the two young girls to Ontario. We reconnected as adults while both doing genealogy research. One day she mentioned her Broccoli Salad to me and as it stands it is still my favourite version of this all time classic!

Ingredients:

3 broccoli stalks with florets
1 small red onion
5-6 pieces of bacon
1/4 cup salad dressing (eg: Miracle Whip)
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 Tbsp vinegar
1 Tbsp sugar

Method:

Cut off stalks of broccoli saving the florets and discarding the stalks add thinly slice onion.
Fry bacon until crisp and crumble and mix with broccoli and onion.
Add salad dressing/Miracle Whip, cheese to mixture.
Separately mix vinegar and sugar together and add to the broccoli mix, then stir together.
