Please help if you can.

I know a GREAT one!! I make this every couple of weeks. It's a low carb recipe, but even all the non-low carbers love it. :)

Broccoli Salad



Ingredients:

1 head fresh broccoli
1 bunch scallions, chopped
1 lb cooked bacon, crumbled
1 cup mayo
1/3 cup splenda (or sugar)
2 tbsp vinegar
1 small package slivered almonds **optional**
1 8 oz. package shredded cheddar **optional**

Cooking Instructions:

Wash and cut up broccoli and scallions. toss to combine; cook bacon, crumble, and mix into veggies; set aside. Make the dressing by combining all ingredients and mix through the salad. Chill for about an hour (can be eaten right away, but taste better if you wait a bit). Serves 6. If you need this recipe to serve more you can easily double or triple it.

Great as a side dish! Since its served cold, and requires no cooking, its a great summer dish. My whole family loves it.

I made the broccoli salad. It looks yummy but I have one question..........because I'm leaving it to sit overnight, I need to know if I should put the almonds in now or wait till the morning. I may add some cheese as well, I'm not sure but I didn't want the almonds to be soggy. Do they get that way overnight?

Probably a good idea to leave them off until you're ready to serve it. You really didnt taste it?? I could never do that :laugh:

Yes, I always add those last just before serving. I hope everyone enjoys this recipe as much as my family has. :)

Jeremy did taste it though. He is eleven and funny when it comes to some raw foods. He loves salad though so I said, "I need your help, will you try this for me?" He did try the dressing first and his face got all sour looking, He said "Mom, I think it needs to sit awhile." Needless to say, I sent him to take a bath and when he came back I had it all mixed up together and gave him a bite to try again and he said, "Hmmh, that's really good. I think I'd like some of that in my lunch tomorrow." I guess if the eleven year old likes it, I should too, right? I'll try it in the morning with the almonds, though. I just don't like eating out of food I'm going to serve somewhere away from home. I don't know why, but it does bother me. I guess other people do it just to make sure it's okay. I'll have to get over my weirdness! :cheer:

Thanks again for the recipe.
