broccoli salad*

Happy St. Patty's Day week! I can't wait to make my yummy treats I have planned - well, sort of. I am having a hard time picking, but I'm tellin ya it's gonna be good!

The weather has been SO NICE the last couple of days and it has made me in the mood for summer! I cannot wait to wear short sleeve shirts and flip flops. So excited! This recipe is a great summer recipe and would be perfect for a picnic! I honestly ate 2 bowl fulls of this stuff. It is AMAZING! My new favorite thing (for now). Where this recipe came from is unknown. My cook Karen got it from somewhere, but I am not sure where...

Broccoli Salad
from unknown??

3/4 lb. broccoli florets
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 lb. bacon, cooked and diced
1/2 lb. Swiss or Monterrey cheese, grated
Cole Slaw mix (cabbage, grated carrots and red cabbage)
Sunflower seeds
Raisins or Craisins - or both!
Cole Slaw dressing (see below)

Put all ingredients in a large bowl and toss until evenly distributed.

Cole Slaw Dressing

3/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. vinegar

Mix all ingredients until well combined.

Add into broccoli mix and toss until evenly coated.

THE END! I was scared to try this, I'll be honest. I love broccoli, but the whole thing just kind of freaked me out for some reason. Once I tried it I couldn't stop. It is so addicting! I'm not even a fan of dried fruit, but we put craisins and I really liked them in this salad. I wish I had the ingredients to make this right now because I really want to eat some!!! I just might have to run to the store... :)
