This is the very best broccoli salad recipe! Veggies, grilled chicken, smoky bacon are all flavored by a creamy dressing.
Lay slices of bacon onto a parchment or aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes, until rendered & crispy. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate and pat the tops with paper towel as well, to absorb extra fat. When cool enough to handle, chop to small pieces.
Combine 1/4 cup mayo, 1 Tbsp vinegar & 1 Tbsp sugar in a bowl. Whisk until homogeneous & smooth.
