Broccoli salad

Guest is Becky Justice


 Needed:(Broccoli Salad) 

Head of broccoli

Candied nuts 

Dried cranberries 

Chopped bacon 

Purple onion 




Red Wine Vinegar 



Candied Nuts: 

Brown Sugar 

Butter (1 stick:) 

Heavy cream(a touch:) 

Pecans or Walnuts 


(Warm butter and brown sugar in a pan add a touch of cinnamon and cook till bubbles watch it all the time) 

Add nuts and mix all together ...remove from heat and place on a greased cookie sheet .....put in 375 oven for about 15 minutes ....when cooled.....break up and let sit over night 


Cut broccoli in desired bite-size 


You can buy bacon bits or chop up a package of bacon and crisp in a skillet (fresh bacon is always better:) ...let cool 


Slice one purple onion in desired bite-size(I like to make a little bigger so people can see it and eat around it:) 


In a larger pan or mixing bowl add all the ingredients above with dried cranberries and chopped up candied nuts 


The sauce: 

Start with about 1 1/2 cups of mayo and about a 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar and about 1/4 cup of sugar (or a little less ...depending on how sweet you want it....remember you have candied nuts :) 


So easy to make this Sauce to taste....if you have too much vinegar add more mayo ...and then switch that if too much vinegar:) 


I wouldn't add sauce until about an hour before serving 


Serve with a burger, doused in salt/pepper and Worcestershire .....served with cheese on a grilled buttered bun!
