Raw is a great way to get your veggies

and they go down real good in this recipe. You know why, don't you? It's called Bacon. Oh, and throw a little mayo and a little sugar. What's not to love. As my dear husband says: salt, sugar and grease, key ingredients for a surefire winner. Our friend Cleo introduced us to this delightful salad. Take it as your contribution to a covered dish outing and I'll guarantee you won't have leftovers and everyone will want the recipe. You can experiment with the type dried fruit and your preference of toasted nuts.

Broccoli Grape Salad:

1/4 lb  Bacon - cooked and broken into bite sized pieces
1 Bunch Broccoli - blanch the flowerets if you like, I don't
6 Small Green Onions - chopped
1 Cup Celery - chopped(optional)
1/2 Cup Sliced Almonds (or Sunflower kernels or what ever you think is good, toast to make crunchy)
1 Cup White Raisens ( or Craisens)
2 Cups Grapes - red seedless(if the grape is large, I cut into halves)
1 Cup Mayonnaise
1/4 Cup Milk
1 Tlb Vinegar
1/4 Cup Sugar

Mix and pour dressing on when ready to serve
