    Broccoli Salad

    Made this for the first time today and it is delish!

    2 heads of broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
    2 1/3 cups of raisins
    1/2 of a small red onion
    1/2 a small pkg of slivered almonds
    10 pieces of bacon crispy fried and crumbled

    Combine the above and add dressing

    1 Cup of mayo
    1/2 Cup sugar
    2 TBSP Vinegar

    Chill for several hours.

    My mother was making this each week, as she loved it so. She added a chopped up apple to it, along with the raisins. It was very good that way too!

    Presume you need to cook broccoli before?

    I make a similar recipe. No bacon, cashews instead of almonds, and I add curry powder to the Mayo. Love this recipe!!

    No you do not cook the broccoli you marinate the salad in the dressing, the broccoli gets a little soft that way.

    I love all the variations to this recipe. I will have to make again using some of them, cashews sound really good.

    I make broccoli salad often, but use dried cranberries instead of raisins, and sunflower seeds instead of nuts. No onion, but a bit of onion powder. Will have to try some of these variations. They all sound delicious.

    Forgot about my broccoli salad. Thanks for the reminder. I'm going to try water chestnuts in it instead of the nuts. This is the same recipe I have. I like to use balsamic vinegar in it.

    I make the same salad, however for the nuts I use dry roasted peanuts. Everyone loves it. Now I have to make it for every pic-nic.

    I use golden raisins and sunflower seeds when I make this salad. I'm lucky if there's any left after the bowl is passed. Yummy!!

    Here in Alaska it is called Bear Camp Salad - hard to grow lettuce here - much easier to grow broccoli. My recipe uses Miracle Whip. Sunflower seeds are good in it too. Eat it fresh - not so good leftover.

    We also make this salad. We use green onions, sunflower seeds and red grapes. Leave the grapes whole for less soggy salad.

    Instead of 2 bunches of broccoli, I use some cauliflower, cheese, bacon, sunflower seeds, red onion and the dressing-I pour the dressing over the salad a few hours before serving-time to soak in-mmmm! I like the idea of the water chestnuts-will have to try that-love the crunchiness of water chestnuts-
