Yield: 6 to 8 servingsTired of the same old spinach salad? Here's a delicious alternative made with good-for-you broccoli. It incorporates the same flavors as the standard spinach salad, but it can be made up to a day in advance and won't wilt on the buffet table.
Ingredients:4 cups broccoli florets
4 hard-boiled eggs, thinly sliced
1/2 cup (or more) thinly sliced onion
10 slices bacon, fried crisp and crumbled
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons vinegar
Instructions:Blanch the broccoli in boiling water to cover for 30 seconds. Remove the broccoli from the water and plunge it into ice water to stop the cooking. Drain well.
In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, eggs, onion, and bacon. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar, whisking until the sugar is dissolved. Pour over the broccoli and mix gently. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight before serving. Just before serving, toss lightly.
