My Mammaw's Christmas dinner was today, and we decided to try a broccoli salad recipe from a favorite restaurant, Sweet Tomatoes. We all loved the result, and my mom is even thinking about adding it to her catering menu! So, if you need a great last minute potluck recipe, this may do the trick:
Joan's Broccoli Madness Salad
Souplantation aka Sweet Tomatoes
6 - 8 servings
1 bunch uncooked broccoli, cut into florets
1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
1/2 cup cashews
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sugar
2 T apple cider vinegar
Mix the broccoli, bacon, cashews, raisins and onions in a large bowl. In a second bowl, beat dressing ingredients together gently until smooth.
About 10 minutes before serving, toss the salad with the dressing to allow flavors to meld. Serve on chilled salad dishes.
