Bacon broccoli salad Hip2Save

 Today, I’m sharing a super simple and delicious side dish perfect for any gathering, holiday event, or even the regular weeknight dinner! This bacon broccoli salad is a family favorite recipe from my mother in law and it is always the first side dish to disappear at any family BBQ.

Bacon Broccoli Salad

1 large head of broccoli, chopped
6 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
1 cup real mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
5 green onions chopped (optional and not shown because I forgot them – woops!)

How to make Broccoli Salad


Cook your bacon and chop it up. Also chop the broccoli. For the dressing, dissolve sugar and vinegar, then stir in mayonnaise.  In a large bowl mix broccoli, bacon, sunflower seeds, raisins, cheddar cheese, and onions. Pour dressing over salad and mix well. Let chill an hour before serving, and enjoy!

Best Broccoli Salad Hip2Save

We love this salad because it’s simple to make, has a great flavor, and always comes out delicious. And, it’s a perfect way to use the big 3 lb. bag of fresh broccoli found at Costco and typically priced around $5. You can even make this salad a day ahead as it keeps well – just consider keeping the dressing separate and putting it on about an hour before serving.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.
