Broccoli Salad......

With summer coming on quickly, we will be looking for great salads to take to picnics or a get together. Broccoli Salad tops my list of favorites. You can also change this recipe in any way you want adding and subtracting your ingredients.
Broccoli Salad
2 bags of broccoli florets
1/3 cup mushrooms
1/4 cup dark raisins
3-4 slices red onion, sliced thin
8-10 slices bacon, cooked crisp
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
Cook bacon and set aside. Cook broccoli in 1/2 cup of water in microwave about 2-3 minutes (till al dente) and drain. Put in broccoli, mushrooms, dark raisins, red onion. Crumble bacon and add bacon and cheddar cheese about an hour before serving.  Optional: You can add 1/3 cup cashews for some extra crunch and flavor.
Dressing: 1 cup Mayonnaise, 1/2 tsp mustard, about 1/2 cup sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Add more dressing if necessary. Salad will get more moist as it sits.
NOTE: Stir salad just before serving to get dressing on everything.
Till next time.....
