Broccoli Salad

Curtis doesn't like this salad. My kids also aren't big fans. They would rather eat plain, lightly cooked broccoli. As for me, this is one of my favorite ways to eat broccoli. I only make it about once a broccoli season though since I am the only one who eats it.

Broccoli Salad
adapted slightly from Simply in Season

3 c broccoli florets, cut into smallish pieces
5 slices thick bacon (or about 10 slices of your typical store bought bacon), fried and crumbled
1 c raisins
1/3 c coarsely chopped peanuts
1/3 c sugar
2 T apple cider vinegar
1 c mayonnaise

Mix together broccoli, bacon, raisins, and peanuts in a large bowl. Set aside. In a separate small bowl, combine sugar, vinegar, and mayonnaise. Pour about half of dressing over broccoli mixture. Taste. Continue to add dressing until you think it has enough.

Broccoli salads scare me too. Maybe it's the mayo and the raisins. However, since I adore Simply in Season (thanks!!) and am fond of your cooking, I'd try a heaping serving of it.
