My mom also made broccoli salad as a side dish for holidays like Easter and Thanksgiving, for family parties and other get togethers. I always looked forward to it and it was usually the first thing I ate on my plate.

The flavor combination is absolutely delicious: the crunch from the broccoli and almonds, paired with the bacon, onions and creamy dressing all work together perfectly.
How to make Broccoli Salad:
Chop the heads of broccoli, discarding the large stems so that just the florets remain. Cut the florets into bite-size pieces.
Two heads of broccoli will yield about 7 cups of florets.
Cook the bacon. Chop the onion and almonds. You can prepare all of these ingredients in advance to make the salad prep go faster. You also use a bag of pre-chopped broccoli florets.
