REC - Broccoli Salad (TNT)

I thought I had posted this in it's own thread before, but I guess I have just posted it within other threads. This is a great salad for taking to cookouts, potlucks, etc.

Broccoli Salad

Salad Ingredients:

6 cups broccoli florets
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup minced red onion
¼ cup slivered almonds, toasted
4 strips of bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
2 tablespoons sugar

Dressing Ingredients:

½ cup olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice
1½ teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon stone ground mustard
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Cut large broccoli florets into bite-size pieces. Place all salad ingredients in a large bowl; set aside. Whisk together dressing ingredients in medium bowl and pour over salad. Toss well to coat all ingredients with dressing. Refrigerate until well chilled. Serves: 6 - 8


Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

Looks gorgeous Sierra, I just adore broccoli. I think I'll adapt this a little (no bacon) and give it a try soon, thank-you
