Summer is a wonderful time of the year. Here in Michigan, our winters are long, dark, and cold. How often I long for the warmth of summer and garden fresh food as I’m shoveling the driveway. I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes today. It’s my Mom’s recipe and a perfect summer dish. ENJOY!!
SUMMER BROCCOLI SALAD
1 Bunch Broccoli (2 large heads) blanched & chopped into small pieces in the food processor
2 cups finely chopped celery (3-4 stalks)
1 cup raisins
1 cup Hellman’s Mayo
1 medium vidalia onion finely chopped
1 cup sunflower seeds
2/3 – 1 lb. bacon well cooked & finely chopped (the packaged pre-cooked works great)
2 tbs. cider vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
That’s it folks. Mix it all together and enjoy one of the best summer dishes in the world!!
