Bacon Broccoli Salad


I always try to have recipes with definite amounts, but this time I am going to leave it up to you and your tastes.  I made this recipe for a family reunion a few weeks ago with broccoli fresh out of my garden and was asked by several family members for the recipe.  I hope you find a balance that your family will enjoy. 

June is National Dairy Month.  Although this recipe doesn’t focus on cheese it certainly made this salad better.  Most broccoli salads use a mayonnaise base for the dressing, but my farmer does NOT eat mayo, so I went in search of a different dressing to use.  After looking at several recipes online and what was in my pantry on that particular day I came up with this tasty recipe that was hard for me to stop eating straight out of the bowl.
