Bacon and Broccoli Salad with a Twist

1.5 to 2 heads of broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces, leaving a bit of stem
½ cup red onion, chopped
¼ cup black pitted olives
8 slices bacon
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Handful of sesame seeds

½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup natural yoghurt
¼ cup white wine vinegar
¼ cup sugar

In a small skillet, fry the bacon until crisp, then remove on paper towels to drain the grease.

Place the broccoli pieces in a large serving bowl, add the shredded cheese, onion and dressing and chill covered for 2 -3 hours.

When chilled, crumbled the crispy bacon into bits and add to the broccoli, then add the sesame seeds and olives.

Toss and enjoy!
