Broccoli, Bacon, & Cheddar Salad

Broccoli Bacon and Cheddar Salad

I was Googling “broccoli” the other day. The first think that appeared were lyrics for the song Broccoli by D.R.AM. featuring Lil Yachty. I love this song and I love broccoli (the vegetable of course). It’s okay if you sing and dance to this song while making this salad, I won’t judge.

My chopped broccoli salad is low on carbs and full of flavor. It’s packed with bacon and extra sharp cheddar. I tossed in some scallions, crunchy apples, jalapeños, carrots, and made a delicious low calorie dressing.

This salad would pair perfectly with a ranch dressing. While my first instincts were to slather the broccoli with ranch, I wanted it to taste light and healthy. Adam isn’t a fan of ranch dressing and I didn’t want the calories so I omitted it. Broccoli Bacon and Cheddar Salad
