As the summer draws to a close, I’m letting my favorite salads have one last hoorah. I made this one for a bonfire picnic we attended last weekend. Thankfully, the weather’s still hot and this salad is a welcome treat when all you want is something cold. I think everyone has a version of this recipe already in their collection somewhere. This is just my take on it. Enjoy, and Happy Labor Day!

For the salad, you will need:
1 large head (or 2 small) of broccoli
6 strips of bacon, fried, then crumbled
1 cup cheddar cheese, cubed
1/4 cup craisins, raisins, or golden raisins
1/4 cup sunflower kernels (mine were roasted and salted)
1/4 cup red onion, diced
For the dressing, you will need:
1 cup mayonnaise
3 TBS vinegar
1 TBS agave nectar
In a large bowl, combine salad ingredients. In a smaller bowl, combine the dressing ingredients. Pour the dressing onto the salad makings and toss to combine. This can be served immediately, but it also tastes quite yummy when the ingredients have had time to sit together in the fridge for a while. Enjoy!
How about you? How do you savor the last taste of summer? Leave me a note in the comments.
