1 C. Hellman's Mayonnaise
1/2 C. sugar
1 T. cider vinegar
2 bunches of fresh broccoli florets cut to be bite size
1/2 pound diced and cooked bacon
1 small onion finely diced
7-8 oz raisins
This recipe can be made using the raw broccoli or it is quite good using blanched broccoli. I am using the blanched today and made it ahead yesterday after blanching green beans. I often do a couple of green vegetables using the same boiling water and blanching the mildest veggies first and the stronger flavor last. I drained and dried the broccoli and stored refrigerated in a plastic bag.
Blend the dressing by mixing the mayo, sugar, and vinegar. Combine the broccoli, bacon, onion, and raisins in a mixing bowl and gently fold in the dressing. Serve slightly chilled. Tastes best when served the same day. Yields 3-4 pints.
