Broccoli Bacon Cheddar Salad - Low Carb Gluten Free

Broccoli bacon cheese salad - easy AND healthy

Now that summer is here and the temps are triple digits, the last thing you want to do is heat up the kitchen.   This Low-Carb and Gluten Free Broccoli Bacon Cheddar Salad is a breeze to make and comes together in about 20 minutes, so it’s the perfect summer dish.

Every bite is packed with flavor… a combination of sweet, tangy, crunchy and creamy makes this broccoli salad recipe so good.

I mix it up in the morning, stick it in the refrigerator to marinate and by lunch time, it’s ready to scoop out on a bed of chopped lettuce, and seldom lasts more than one meal.

Depending on what I have in the house, I use grapes or dried cranberries and either sunflower seeds or slivered almonds.  Any way you mix it, it’s still delicious.
