    Debber's Note:

    First time I had this at a church potluck, another lady and I were nearly fighting over the last serving--it was SO good! So we took the empty bowl and went looking for the owner to BEG for the recipe. Here it is!

    Salad

    Dressing

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Fry the bacon; break into pieces; set aside.
    2. 2
      Trim broccoli stems, cut into 1/2 - 1-inch pieces; cut flower ends into small pieces, too; put into a large serving bowl.
    3. 3
      Slice green onions into the broccoli (large onion should be chopped).
    4. 4
      Add raisins and nuts to the broccoli and onions; tossing well.
    5. 5
      Add bacon now or wait until serving time if you don't like it to get soggy-ish.
    6. 6
      DRESSING: Mix dressing ingredients in a small bowl until sugar dissolves.
    7. 7
      Add dressing to the broccoli mixture; stir well to coat everything.
    8. 8
      If you didn't add the bacon earlier, add it now.
    9. 9
      Best served at room temperature.
    10. 10
      OPTIONS: Leave out the raisins or nuts or bacon--just don't leave them all out at the same time. Instead of 3 bunches of broccoli, add some cauliflower--very pretty, too!

      This salad was absolutely delicious! I used cauliflower florets too and omitted the raisins. It turned out wonderful. This is so easy to make too. Thanks for posting.

      Quick and easy and very good. I scaled everything back for 1 1/2 lbs of mixed broccoli and cauliflower florets, leaving out the raisins and using the higher amount for the vinegar. If I leave out the raisins again next time, I'd double the cashews or add something else salty and crunchy. I think sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or pine nuts would all be good too. I was worried the dressing would be too sweet, so I cut back by about 2 teaspoons of sugar (equivalent to about 2 tablespoons less for the full recipe) and that worked well. Thanks for sharing.

      I love this recipe! It's like turning Broccoli into a dessert!!! And it's so versatile - I've used many different variations. <br/><br/>I do try to cut a few calories. I very often substitute low-fat (not fat-free) mayo and use only 3/4 cup, I use only 1/4 cup sugar and one packet Nutresse, and sometimes I use red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar to change up the 'tang'. It makes a little less dressing, but if you mix it well - I put it in a tupperware bowl with lid and shake it like crazy - it covers everything deliciously with a little reduction in calories.<br/><br/>I prefer red onions to green onions, and using craisins (raisins made from cranberries) also gives it a fun, unique flavor. My family doesn't like it when I add the nuts, so I usually leave those out and only add them to my own serving when eating. I prefer sunflower seeds, myself, though the cashews are good, too.<br/><br/>It is incredibly scrumptious. Thank you for posting the recipe! I could never remember the portion of vinegar.
