I can't believe how many people came up to me after Allie's party and asked for the broccoli salad recipe. It's a copycat version for the one at Souplantation, although I've never actually eaten it there. Of all places, I sampled it at Costco and was hooked. Scott and the kids loved it too so I searched for a recipe and here's the one I use:
1 bunch of uncooked broccoli florets
1/2 c crumbled, cooked bacon
1/2 c cashews (I used peanuts once and it still tasted pretty good.)
1/3 c raisins
1/4 c chopped red onions (I finely dice these.)
1 c mayo
1/3 c sugar
2 T apple cider vinegar
Beat the dressing ingredients gently until smooth and toss in the broccoli, bacon, cashews, raisins, and onions. Serve immediately.
It makes a great side for a BBQ, potluck, or any at-home dinner. Enjoy!
