Great for picnics, parties, or bbqs.

1/2 honey or sugar
2 tbsp vinegar
3-4 scallions (green onions) or 1 red onion chopped fine
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts
5-6 slices bacon, cooked crisp, and crumbled

(1) combine dressing by mixing mayo, vinegar, sugar.
(2) combine salad by mixing broccoli, onion, raisins.
(3) pour dressing over salad, toss, and put in fridge for a few hours to marinate and let flavours blend.
(4) just before serving, sprinkle with dry roasted nuts and bacon (so they remain crunchy)

This was sooooo good at our annual BBQ. I recommend it. Great way to get kids to eat salad and esp to eat broccoli.

lullaby
by: hypno

Come little children, come with me
Safe and happy you will be
Away from your homes, now let us run
With Hypno, you'll have so much fun

Oh, little children, please don't cry
Hypno wouldn't hurt a fly
Be free, be free be free to play
Come down in my cave with me to stay

Oh, little children, please don't squirm
Those ropes, I know, will hold you firm
Hypno tells you this is true
But sadly, Hypno lied to you

Oh, little children, you mustn't leave
Your families for you will grieve
Their minds will unravel at the seams
Allowing me to haunt their dreams

But surely, all of you must know
That it is time for you to go
Oh, little children, you weren't clever
Now you shall stay with me forever

Family Favorite
by: Debbie

Made this salad on several occasions, rave reviews from the whole family. We use dried cranberries and toasted sunflower seeds. Very pretty addition to any table.

1/2 cup honey or sugar
by: Nancy

Hi Salad Star,
I made the salad with 1/2 cup honey. It was really good that way. I'm sure you could use less as per your family's taste. :)

Really good
by: Chriss

We all enjoyed this version of a classic winter salad. The adding cranberries gives some extra colour as well.
