I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Broccoli Salad

Fresh, light and delicious.  Easy to make.   I think it tastes better if you let it set for a few hours in the refrigerator.

(serves 6)

*2 heads fresh broccoli
*1 small red onion
*1/2 pound bacon (optional), cooked & crumbled
*1/2 cup dried cranberries
*1/2 cup pecans, chopped
*3/4 cup mayonnaise
*1/4 cup white sugar
*1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1/4 teaspoon black pepper
*1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

~In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, salt, pepper & garlic powder until smooth.
~Cut the broccoli into bite-size pieces and place in a medium size bowl.
~Add the onion cut into thing slices & then cut in half.
~Add bacon, dried cranberries, pecans & toss together.
~Mix the mayonnaise mixture into the broccoli mixture.
~Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

`substitute dried cranberries with raisins.
`substitute dried cranberries with fresh fruit, such as red grapes, oranges, strawberries (all chopped or sliced into bite-size pieces).
