As the summer salad season approaches, this broccoli salad recipe is definitely a keeper!  The recipe comes from an Amish woman in Navarre, Ohio.  Navarre is at the northern edge of Ohio’s “Amish archipelago.”  Some of you may know Navarre as home to the Nickle’s Bread bakery, the smell of which permeates every corner and crack of the town.  The rolling hills and temperate climate of this part of Ohio makes it ideal for growing gardens full of broccoli, some of which can be used in this delicious salad recipe. Give it a try!

Recipe for Broccoli Salad

This recipe, by the way,comes from my upcoming book, Amish Cooks Across America, which is scheduled for release a month from today.

1 head broccoli, chopped

1 head cauliflower, chopped

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup sour cream

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 pound bacon, fried and crumbled

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese 

Combine the chopped broccoli and cauliflower in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar, and salt to make a creamy dressing. Add the dressing to the broccoli–cauliflower mix, stirring to evenly coat the vegetables. Stir in the bacon and the cheese, reserving a small amount to sprinkle on top of the salad just before serving.

 [td1]If you’re reserving an amount to sprinkle before serving, does this mean you should chill it for an hour first?

 [P2]Does not need chilling

    How long does this broccoli salad last? Is it best made just a few hours before, or can it do well in the refrigerator for a day or two?

    • Definitely a day, two might be pushing it…but, yes, chill the salad first, it’s delicious that way!

    This has been a go-to recipe for me for years when going to a pitch-in or a potluck dinner. Every time I take it, I get people begging me for the recipe!

  3. This is different than the recipe I have been using. Mine has the addition of onions, and no sour cream. I think I’ll keep the onions, but add sour cream and see what happens!
