Broccoli Salad

Here is a recipe I haven't made in a while. Its just one of those things that when it has the word "broccoli", it somehow gets lost in the recipe box.

This is a recipe I inherited from my mother-in-law. It is a delicious and tasty salad. Even if your not a fan of broccoli, you will like this.

You start off with a bunch of broccoli trees. ( I used 3 small bunches).

I like to cut the tips up really small and get rid of any stems. I just like the florets but you can leave some stems in if you really want to.

I added the rest of the ingredients:
1/2 small onion,
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup raisins
4 slices of cooked bacon crumbles.
Then I poured on the mixed dressing consisting of:
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons of vinegar.

Stir it all together, put it in the fridge for 30 minutes and serve.

This is quick and easy and is always a hit at covered dish dinners. It will keep for 3 or 4 days but it will probably not last that long.
