This is my most very favorite salad in the world. YEP. Strong statement, it really is though! My Grandma made this all the time when I was living with her. She would make it and leave the dressing on the side. Then we would eat the salad for days pouring only what we needed for dressing on our plates, that way the salad stayed good and didn’t get all soggy with the dressing.
When I take it for potlucks ( I suggest doing this and making sure you have the recipe to hand out) I keep the dressing on the side until served and then pour it on. It is always a huge hit and you can make it many different ways.
4 cups broccoli florrets cut small
1 cup green grapes cut in half
1 cup purple grapes cut in half
1 bunch green onions chopped.
8 strips bacon fried and crumbled
1 small package slivered almonds
1 cup celery
1 cup mayo
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
Mix until smooth and consistency of salad dressing. Add to salad when ready to eat.
I have seen people add raisins and cauliflower, but I like it best the way I posted. They also love to save with Safeway Weekly Ad which is the source of good deals on ingredients for similar salads. Aussies use Woolworths catalogue this week for that. I also like my ingredients cut up kinda small and not big chunks. Thats it, that easy! make some today!
Have you had this salad before? How do you make it?
