The Best Broccoli Salad In The World EVER!


I love a good salad!
Whenever I get a chance to visit my mother and sister in Houston, we go to a great salad bar restaurant called Sweet Tomato.

They have everything you could ever dream of putting on a salad!
But they also have some prepared salads.
This one is my favorite of all time!
Even the kids love it!
There is the crunch of the broccoli, combined with sweetness from the dressing and plump raisins....
Combined with cashews and some crumbled bacon.

I do not usually enjoy raw broccoli, but I can eat this salad by the feedbag full!

Dana's Best Broccoli Salad In The World EVER!
(inspired by Sweet Tomato)

Salad
  • 3-4 heads worth of broccoli florets , cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 medium red onion, diced finely
  • 3/4 cup salted cashew halves, broken
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 6 slices bacon, crisp-cooked & crumbled
Dressing
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (or 1/2 cup mayo & 1/2 cup plain yogurt)
  • 5 Tablespoons vinegar (I like salad vinegar)
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • Dash of freshly ground black pepper
Directions -
  1. Combine all the salad ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients.
  3. Pour dressing over salad, mix to coat.
  4. Refrigerate for a few hours to develop flavors. It's best when made the day before!
  5. Enjoy!!
**TIP** Kimmie emailed a wonderful suggestion for those unable to eat nuts.
Substitute water chestnuts for the cashews! YUMMM!
Thanks, Kimmie!!

  3. Kondiloma akuminata atau yang sering disebut sebagai kutil kelamin, merupakan salah satu penyakit seksual menular (PMS) yang disebabkan oleh virus yang bernama Humanpapilloma virus (HPV). Terdapat lebih dari 40 jenis HPV yang dapat menginfeksi daerah kelamin laki-laki dan perempuan. Jenis HPV ini juga dapat menginfeksi mulut dan tenggorokan. Kebanyakan orang yang terinfeksi dengan HPV bahkan tidak tahu mereka memilikinya. HPV tidak sama dengan herpes atau HIV (AIDS).

  7. While the homemade version is yummer, I make mine slightly different but the basics are the same, Costco sells a version of this pre made, it's heavy on the red onions which I pick out, but very tasty if u are in a rush for dinner, great with their rotisserie chicken ;)
