Tired of the same old spinach salad? Broccoli Salad is a delicious alternative. 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.

    I haven’t tried this recipe yet — I make mine very similar — instead of eggs, I add raisins amd everyone loves it. I use red onions and red wine vinaigrette.
