  • Broccoli florets
  • Bacon
  • Shredded cheese
  • Mayonnaise
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Sugar
  • Lemon juice
  • Small mixing bowl (combining and mixing the wet ingredients to create our dressing)
  • Large mixing bowl (combining the broccoli and bacon, and then pouring the final dressing over them)
  • Colander or strainer
  • Cutting board
  • Knife or scissors
  • Pan or skillet


  1. Cut the broccoli into florets: First, remove the fresh broccoli and separate it into florets.
    They should be carefully washed, rinsed, and then drained in a colander. As you get the other ingredients ready, set them aside to dry. See the frequently asked questions section below for instructions on cutting broccoli.
  2. Cook the bacon: We want the bacon to be cooked evenly, so place it in a cold pan and fry it there.
    When the bacon buckles and curls, flip it over. Once they are equally browned, transfer them to a paper towel to absorb any leftover grease before allowing them to cool.
    Make bite-sized cuts in them. If you are using bacon pieces from the supermarket, you may skip this step, but for the best flavor, we suggest frying the bacon yourself.
  3. Combine broccoli, bacon, and cheese: In a large mixing bowl, combine the broccoli florets, cut bacon that is crisp, and shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese.
  4. Prepare to dress: In a separate small mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and lemon juice. Mix them well and stir or whisk until the sugar is dissolved.
  5. Transfer the dressing: Over the cheese, bacon, and broccoli florets, drizzle the thoroughly blended dressing mixture. Mix them thoroughly until the dressing is evenly distributed over the broccoli.
  6. Store in refrigerator to chill: The bowl must be chilled by being placed in the refrigerator as the last step. It's better to serve this broccoli salad chicken salad imitation cold!


  • To ensure that the bacon cooks evenly and fully, avoid overlapping the strips when cooking.
  • The final result should be chilled for at least 2 hours for the optimum flavor, allowing the dressing to fully saturate the broccoli. You can make it a day ahead and refrigerate it for the night as well!


Refrigerator: If properly stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, the broccoli salad can last up to 3 days. This is the recommended method of storage. After 3 days, toss any leftovers.
At room temperature: If left out in the open at room temperature, we recommend limiting it to 2 hours. This is because the ingredients used are perishable, such as mayonnaise and cheese.
Freezer: We do not recommend freezing broccoli salad for long periods of time because it will alter the taste and quality. It is best to eat it fresh.
In any case, because this Chicken Salad Chick broccoli salad recipe is so quick and easy to make, there’s no need to freeze it for later!
