This broccoli salad is a real crowd-pleaser. Lots of bacon, plus juice grapes make this recipe stand out from the pack.

Serve this salad at your next potluck, picnic or holiday gathering. It goes well with everything from fried chicken to turkey burgers. It's also a great way to introduce picky eaters (that includes adults as well as kids) to broccoli.
