Red Broccoli Salad

The recipe below is from allrecipes.com, but I have to give credit to my friend Janice who brought this salad over to my house for a luncheon two Christmases ago. (I have made it many times since then!) Not only is this the prettiest, most colorful, little salad..the flavors are out of this world.  My daughter made it for an office party where she works..not one bite left over,  and everyone took the recipe home with them. 

 

  • 2 pounds bacon, browned and crumbled (I barely use 1/2 that amount.)

    This is a great photo showing the dainty size of the chopped broccoli. The smaller pieces are essential and make the salad easy to eat.
  • 1 large head broccoli chopped into bite-sized pieces.
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/3 cup diced red onions
  • 1 and 1/2 cup seedless, red grapes halved.
  • 3/4 cup blanched, slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup white sugar (yeah..I know, but you really do need it.)
  • 2 TBSP distilled white vinegar
  • 1 cup mayonnaise

 

 

In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar – set aside.

In large bowl, combine everything else, add dressing and mix, chill for several hours.
