For lunch today with our chicken salad croissant, I decided to make a broccoli salad. This is a southern broccoli salad because this recipe uses Duke’s mayonnaise. Everyone in the south uses and love Dukes Mayo. The dressing is sweet but also has a little tartness from the white vinegar, it makes this recipe very delicious!
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup Mayonnaise (Dukes Mayo)
1 teaspoon white vinegar
raisins, add to taste – I generally add a hand full
small red onion, add to taste
bacon, 3-4 strips cooked or use real bacon bits in a jar
Start by washing and cutting the broccoli into bit size pieces. Cook 3-4 strips of bacon or use the real bacon bits in a jar. Let the bacon drain, then chop into bits. Chop small red onion, add as much or little as you like.
Combine all of the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and mix well.
Just before you are ready to serve, add the cut broccoli, onion and raisins into a bowl and stir in the dressing. Then top with the cheese and bacon.
