When you’re planning a buffet, you have to keep in mind those meat eaters of the bunch, even when you’re in charge of salad. So how do you get your favorite alpha to eat his veggies? Why not put some bacon in it!
My favorite recipe for Broccoli Salad has a bowl full of goodness, including bacon and cheddar cheese! Best part is, you can make it in advance. It only gets better the longer the sauce soaks into all those bits of broccoli!

You can make it even easier by getting one of those little bags of prepared bacon (not the crunchy bacon bits, but the pieces). Gotta be honest though, my crew prefers when I make the bacon myself. Of course they do.
Now doesn’t this just look yummy?
And if your pack is more of the non-meat eating variety, try out this take on the recipe with cranberries and sunflower seeds! Another hit for my crew!
