Cheesy Bacon Broccoli Salad

My body is telling me it needs more greens. And I don't mean mixed salad greens drizzled with dressing, either. I've got that one covered. I think this is the point in the summer when my body gets weary of potato salad and potato chips as sides, and craves cancer-fighting, Vitamin C- packed veggies with some bite to it. Enter the broccoli salad that even the kiddos love! Should anyone in your family find it unappetizing to eat raw broccoli, take comfort in knowing you will be smothering them with cheese and bacon. Problem solved.
