AMISH BROCCOLI, CHICKEN AND BACON SALAD

This is a wonderful broccoli salad. A lovely summer salad! The addition of chicken means it could make a meal, if desired. This recipe will definitely feed a crowd.  Also, my hubby lost 3 lbs in the week using this recipe.  He would even have it for breakfast some days.

1 lb chopped broccoli (0.45 kg)
