It gave me terrible indigestion, but my sister's parents loved it and wanted recipe. I'm adopted so that's why i didn't say my parents in case you were wondering. Do you know how to make collar greens? My real momma wants them a thanks giving day. I m cooking for 5 mommas and 2 papas and my sister and her 6 children. Thank you for the help.
Yum, yumm! This is such a tasty salad although I do need to do some serious adjusting to the fat content next time. I think I can cut the bacon in half without damaging the end result too much. It is a nice mix of a spinach salad with a broccoli salad. I did use craisins instead of raisins because I had a package opened. I don't think it damaged the salad any and the colour is pretty. Thanks for a great recipe.
LOVED this salad. However, it does not make 8 servings, as far as I can see? I made up a half recipe for 4 people using Miracle Whip. Ran out and just a bit short but figured it was enough. Looked at what was in my bowl and realized it would never be enough for 4 of us. So made another half recipe but had to use real mayo, as that was all I had left. I'd say this is 6 side-servings. (We like lots of veggies.) I love the flavor the bacon adds, and the combination of ingredients just works so well. I have another broccoli salad I like very much, which has no bacon or egg in it, and that one is lower cal. But this one is a nice change for sometimes. Still licking my lips over this salad from last night.

I am a Christian wife and mother of 3 kids. Since my DH's high cholesterol, we've been eating better. I never used to like cooking. Since eating better, I've liked learning and preparing new recipes. My kids haven't reconciled themselves to the new eating yet. I grind my own grain and make all my own breads.?Working 2 hours a day in the local high school lunch room.??I am homeschooling my high schooler.? ?Also found out 1 child has multiple food allergies (wheat, dairy, tomato, chocolate, etc) and another is gluten sensitive. So, we just started (July 09) eating gluten and dairy free. I've been busy with getting our house market ready, even though it's not the best time for that.?
