It's been really hot here, so I made this the other day. You can add onion, bell or hot peppers or celery if you have them. I've seen it made with raisons, hubby hates those.

Fresh Broccolli (frozen will NOT work)
1/2 of a 3 oz. package of bacon bits
chopped onion or onion powder
garlic powder
grated cheese-1/4 cup cheddar or 1/8 cup parmesan
Teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar
enough mayo to coat it

Chop up the brocolli throwing away the hard nasty pieces. Blanch the broccolli, which is basically dumping it in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, no more than 5, you can salt the water if you need salt. drain and rinse with lots of cold water, the broccolli should be bright green. add all the other stuff except the mayo and mix together, add a little mayo at a time until it's coated.

We like dried cranberries in broccoli salad.
