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!

  1. Fry the bacon; break into pieces; set aside.
  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. Slice green onions into the broccoli (large onion should be chopped).
  4. Add raisins and nuts to the broccoli and onions; tossing well.
  5. Add bacon now or wait until serving time if you don't like it to get soggy-ish.
  6. DRESSING: Mix dressing ingredients in a small bowl until sugar dissolves.
  7. Add dressing to the broccoli mixture; stir well to coat everything.
  8. If you didn't add the bacon earlier, add it now.
  9. Best served at room temperature.
  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!
