Cooking with LJ from Arkansas

Well with Thanksgiving almost here and the Clemson/ Carolina game approaching soon, here are three recipes for broccoli salad. We are all adults now and should bring a side dish to our parent’s house for Thanksgiving or at least some store bought cookies. It is time to stop mooching and start helping out. So here are three easy recipes I found.

BROCCOLI GRAPE SALAD1 head broccoli, cut stems and tops in small pieces1 c. celery, finely chopped1 c. green grapes1 c. red grapes1/2 c. bacon (about 8 slices), cooked and crumble the bacon1 c. toasted slivered almonds, can use sunflower seeds, alsoDRESSING:Mix all together. Pour and toss salad. Chill about 2 to 4 hours before serving.1 c. mayonnaise1 tbsp. vinegar

BACON-BROCCOLI SALAD WITH RAISINS 4 stalks broccoli, chopped (I use mostly the tips, so it takes more broccoli.)1/2 red onion, chopped (not too fine)1/3 to 1/2 c. raisinsMix the above ingredients in a mixing bowl. In a separate container, mix: 1 c. mayonnaise 2 tbsp. white vinegar Pour over salad to marinate in refrigerator for half a day. Just before serving, fry crisp bacon to crumble over salad.

BROCCOLI SALAD 1 bunch broccoli (raw)1/2 c. onion, chopped1/2 c. raisins1/2 c. Spanish peanuts1 can or jar bacon bitsMix together, breaking up broccoli into bite-size pieces. Dressing to follow.BROCCOLI SALAD DRESSING:1 c. mayonnaise1/2 c. sugar2 tsp. vinegar

Also if you decide to watch the Arkansas/LSU game on Friday I will be sitting in the end zone about 10 rows up, so look for me and the family.

Have a great thanksgiving and go cocks!!!!!
