Broccoli Salad: Take Two


THIS is my very favorite broccoli salad! Gram brought it down for Mother's Day. We had so much great food, and ended with some yummy peach cobbler from my other Grandma! I just realized that means we made the mothers bring something...will have to work on that for next year!

Broccoli Salad
(from Gram)

1 head cauliflower, broken into small flowerets 1/3 to 1/2 cup Splenda
2 bunches broccoli, broken into small flowerets 1 cup lite mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped red onion 2 Tbsp. vinegar
1/2 to 1 cup raisins
8 to 12 slices bacon, fried crisp and crumbled

Combine the broccoli, cauliflower, onion and raisins in a large bowl. In a separate small bowl, combine sugar, mayonnaise, and vinegar; pour dressing over vegetables. Marinate the salad in the dressing at least 1 to 3 hours or overnight before serving. Serves 6 to 8.
It is another "leftover" that gets better every day!!
