Recipe by Tona C.
This salad was served on a truck stop buffet in Illinois. It was so good that I asked for the recipe, and they were kind enough to share it. From the kitchen of Tona Thornburg Court, Bridgeton MO.
- 1 large head of broccoli, washed trimmed & dried (use florets only, no stems)
- 1⁄2 cup dark raisins or 1⁄2 cup white raisins

- 1⁄2 lb bacon, fried crisp and crumbled
- 1 cup red sweet onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
