This Bacon Broccoli Salad Recipe is the perfect cold, summer dish for those hot days! With carrots, bacon, and broccoli, this is the perfect deli salad. It goes really well with anything barbecue.
In our house, cold salads are not only perfect for cooling off our hot bodies, but also helping to keep my house cool. If you buy pre-cooked bacon, there is no cooking involved.
I love the crunchiness of this bacon broccoli salad recipe. It is on the healthier side, but still delicious. The addition of the bacon and sunflower seeds add enough protein to make this a meal all on its own.
