This recipe originally came from Don’s mom, Momma Betty, and it is our daughter Roni’s favorite salad. It’s a good “covered dish” to take to a potluck dinner. It’s easy and quite tasty. I made it yesterday to take to Valley Friends Meeting (Quakers) today because Meeting was having a special speaker today after Meeting for Worship.
3 Bunches of broccoli crowns, cut in bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup chopped onions (I like the red onions for this)
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted or 12 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup white raisins (can substitute brown raisins or craisins)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar (or raspberry vinegar)
Mix the broccoli, onions, almonds and raisins until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk all of the dressing ingredients until smooth. Pour the dressing over the broccoli mixture and mix to combine. Serve immediately or refrigerate to serve later.
