We’ve been over my aversion to vegetables many, many times. I don’t really like them all that much. I really try sometimes because I know they’re good for me, but I was the kid who only ate broccoli when there was Cheez Whiz slathered on top (no exaggeration, true story). Those types of icky feelings toward vegetables have stayed with me through adulthood. A bad habit, for sure, and one that I’m not necessarily proud of, but, it’s me. Aside from Cheez Whiz, there is one guaranteed way to get me to eat broccoli… This salad. It certainly doesn’t hurt that there is bacon and cheese involved (does it ever hurt?), and I could eat this all day. My grandma has been making this for family get togethers for as long as I can remember, and I’ve been addicted to it for just as long.
