Broccoli Salad

4-5 spears fresh broccoli ,washed and chopped

1 pound bacon, cut to bits, and fried crisp ( I use scissors to cut it)

1 cup golden raisins, plumped (Soak for 10 minutes in HOT water, drain) Can also use Craisins straight from the bag

1/2 cup toasted almonds or 1/2 cup roasted sunflower seeds (or both)

In A bowl combine broccoli, raisins or craisins, toasted almonds or sunflower seeds, and bacon. Add dressing just before serving so the bacon doesn't get soggy.


Mix together and let sit for a least 3 hours, for flavors to develop:

3 Tablespoons red onion, minced

2 Cups Mayo (NOT Miracle Whip)

1 Cup sugar (Can use 1/2 c sugar, 1/2 cup Splenda)

1/2 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
