This is a really good salad, one of the best. We made it, thinking we would take it to a family reunion. We were sure that it would be an absolute hit. But alas, we forgot it in the refrigerator.
1 head fresh broccoli chopped
1/2 medium red onion diced
1/2 pound bacon fried and crumbled
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
3 cups cooked sweet potato orzo
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- In a large bowl, combine the chopped broccoli, the diced red onion, the fried and crumbled bacon, one-half cup grated cheddar cheese, and the three cups sweet potato orzo until ingredients are well distributed.
- Prepare the dressing by mixing the cup of mayonnaise with the one-fourth cup of sugar and the one tablespoons cider vinegar.
- Pour the dressing over the broccoli mixture and toss to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and place it in refrigerator for three hours. Serve cold.
