My FAMOUS (even if only in my own mind) Broccoli Salad. This is one of my favorite salads! I love the freshness and it is perfect for a Southern family dinner. The trick to MY salad is that you blanch the broccoli to bring out the bright green color and to lightly cook. It is still crisp just more tender. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
2 heads broccoli
6 slices bacon, crisp & crumbled
1/2 c golden raisins
1/2 c toasted almonds
1 small red onion, chopped fine
1 c mayo
1/4 c honey
2 Tb vinegar
Blanch broccoli for 2-3 mins, remove, and submerge in cold water. Once cool add red onion and raisins to broccoli. Mix dressing and pour 1/4 to 1/2 onto broccoli mix and chill. Just before serving add almonds & crumbled bacon and additional dressing (if needed). Makes a great addition to any spring or summer meal. Enjoy!
