Broccoli Salad

Comment on this recipe

When Jay, our only child, told us he was coming from Las Vegas to the Robinson and Logan reunions the third Sunday in July. I knew I should fix this salad. When he was a young boy we had a large garden in our backyard. One year he wanted to plant "little trees." That was what he called broccoli. That is why I knew I had to make this salad. We belong to both families. The reunions are held in the VFW hall in Macomb. I split this recipe in half, one for each. We brought very little home. When the women's group had a lunch and quilt show at Silvis United Methodist Church, I took this salad. Several members have told me how good it was! That is why I am entering it.

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds broccoli, trimmed, cut into small pieces
1/2 onion, chopped fine
1/2 cups raisins
10 to 12 strips bacon, fried, drained, cup up
1 cup mayonnaise-style salad dressing
1/2 cup sugar or sugar substitute
2 tablespoons vinegar

Instructions

Mix together broccoli, onion, raisins and bacon. In a separate bowl, mix together salad dressing, sugar and vinegar. Stir into salad. Cover with plastic wrap and chill before serving.
