What's to Eat? Wednesday: Broccoli Salad

My sister-in-law was sweet enough to buy me the Paula Deen cookbook and even got it signed on her recent trip to Tunica. I've just tried a couple recipes so far, but this was one was by far the best. In fact, this recipe was so good there weren't even leftovers to take pictures of!

Broccoli Salad

1 head broccoli
6 to 8 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup raisins, optional
8 ounces sharp Cheddar, cut into very small chunks
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
Salt and Pepper

Trim off the leaves from the broccoli stem. Remove the tough stalk at the end and wash broccoli head thoroughly. Cut the head into flowerets and the stem into bite-size pieces. Place in a large bowl. Add the crumbled bacon, onion, raisins, and cheese. In a small bowl combine the remaining ingredients, stirring well. Add to broccoli mixture and toss gently.
