Not too long ago, my friend, Jimmy, made this salad for his family and me for dinner. I thought that kids across America would enjoy broccoli more if it tasted like this! I asked for the recipe and was told that it was just broccoli and ranch dressing. Hmmm. “Surely it’s more complicated than that!” I thought. I finally gave it a whirl yesterday, and no, it’s not complicated in the least.
Incidentally, this would be good with cauliflower, carrots, peas and many other garden veggies. What an easy lunch to pack for the job!
1 bunch of broccoli, raw or barely blanched, cut in bite-sized pieces
bacon, cooked and crumbled (I think I used 4 or so slices.)
cheese, grated (I think I used about a cup.)
ranch dressing (from the bottle, from the packet or from scratch–your choice, as much as you want)
Combine above ingredients and refrigerate until ready to serve.
