    Broccoli Salad Yum

    Ingredients:

    2 bunches broccoli, florets only (5 to 6 cups florets)
    1 medium red onion, chopped
    1/2 cup raisins (I used Craisins instead...........the dried Cranberries, more than 1/2 cup)
    10 to 12 slices bacon, fried and crumbled ( be sure you fry to crispy so it will crumble)

    Dressing:
    1 cup mayonnaise ( I used 1/2 cup of yogurt and 1/2 cup of Mayo)
    2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar- I added some white vinegar
    2 teaspoons sugar

    I added a bunch of grapes..... and a lot of sunflower seeds. I didn't measure. You could also add nuts
    Preparation:
    Separate florets from broccoli stalks. Save the remainder of the broccoli for another use or freeze for later. Combine salad ingredients; top with dressing mixture. Chill and serve.

    Enjoy!

    Instead of sugar you can use splenda in the salad.

    I like using Parmesan cheese in the dressing, and have been replacing the raisins with plum amazing, the dried plums, they are so yummy

    I steam the broccoli until it's half cooked and then drop in ice water to stop the cooking. It seems to make the dressing absorb better and the color is beautiful.

    I do this with Sliced Red oinions and then do dried Cherries, but I soak them in water to get them softer... add crumbles picans, and Red bell pepper slices, plus the broccoli, and bacon... yogart for the dressing. steevia for the sugar, now you have a diet salad...
