A long time ago when I only had two kids, we went to a potluck where someone had brought Broccoli Salad. I had never tried such a salad, but I REALLY liked it and got the recipe. I'm not a big fan of raisins in food, other than baked goods, but it works well here. The photo didn't turn out too well, but this salad is YUUUUUMMY!
2 bunches of broccoli cut up
1 small red onion, sliced
1 c. chopped celery
1/2 c sunflower seeds
1 c. raisins
10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
3/4 c. mayo
2T. red wine vinegar
1/4 c. sugar
Mix dressing, pour over ingredients, and chill. If you have the time, drain the broccoli after you wash it and let it dry. Too much water sticking to the broccoli will water down the dressing and leave you with a pool at the bottom.
Something new... Spinach Quiche with aged goat cheese blue cheese. I also threw in last night's pasta sauce made with portobello mushrooms, asparagus, onions, and tomatoes. The blue cheese wasn't strong in flavor, it mellowed out a little, which was good. Some bacon bits could of been good too...
