Layered Broccoli Salad

There is something so refreshing and delicious about food that is in season.  My peas are bursting off the vines, there is proliferent amounts of broccoli in gardens around the midwest and isn't bacon always in season?  I'm thinking, "Yes!"  Broccoli Salad is a must have this time of year.

Before we get started I have to share my new favorite thing to wear ... skirts!  I had /no idea/ they could be so comfortable and cool (literally) until recently.  Admitedly I can't just dive into garden work when I've donned my favorite comfortable knit skirt but I sure can enjoy a bottle glass of wine (or my favorite broccoli salad!) with friends without feeling stoggy.  You learn new things every day.

Thanks, *C*, for being my photographer so I could show
off my favorite new wardrobe piece

Back to the recipe:

Layered Broccoli Salad

6 cups chopped broccoli flowerettes (bite sized pieces for easy eating)
1 cup shelled peas (optional, although quite delicious)
1 small red onion, sliced thin
1 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup plain yogurt or Greek Yogurt
3 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup hulled sunflower seeds or walnuts
4 pieces of cooked, crispy bacon

In a large glass serving bowl mix broccoli, peas and onion.

In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, honey, mayonnaise and vinegar.

Drizzle the yogurt dressing over the broccoli mixture

Layer cheese on top

 Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.  If it has a few hours to sit in the frig your vegetables will 'marinade' nicely in the dressing mixture.

Walnuts: Chop bacon and walnuts and set aside
Sunflowers: If you are using sunflowers mix chopped bacon and seeds in a small bowl and set aside.

Sprinkle with bacon mixture just before serving

Enjoy the tastes and pleasures of the summer season!
