This broccoli bacon salad may throw some food connoisseurs for a loop at first. After all, people don’t normally combine bacon with veggies. But those people are just wasting a good opportunity to take bacon to new unprecedented heights. Combining it with broccoli is a great way to heighten the flavorings of both the broccoli and the bacon. If these two are still not enough to make the ultimate salad, then take it to next level of tastiness and add a little cheese.
This is one of the few bacon-based dishes that you don’t have to argue with your wife over permission to eat it. That’s because the second primary ingredient in this dish is broccoli, which is hands down one of the healthiest things you can eat. Broccoli contains potent antioxidants that protect your heart and bolster the immune system. They also have bioactive compounds that reduce inflammation and protect the body against the development of certain cancers.
