Broccoli Salad

This is a great tasting salad and if you use Splenda instead of the sugar, it's low carb friendly if your into that kind of thing. The bacon is a must, it really makes the salad.

8 slices bacon, fried very crisp, drained and crumbled
2 heads fresh broccoli cut into bite size pieces
1 1/2 cups sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 large red onion, chopped
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

In a large bowl combine broccoli, cheese, onion and bacon.

In a small bowl whisk together vinegar, sugar, pepper, salt, mayonnaise, and lemon juice, pour over salad ingredients and toss to coat. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours and toss before serving.
