German Broccoli Salad Recipe
3 bunches broccoli crowns, cut into bite-size florettes
1 lb bacon, cut into 2" pieces
1 large red onion, diced
1/2 cup mayonaise
2 Tbl vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups shredded cheddar
Wash and cut broccoli and set aside. Prepare dressing by mixing mayo, vinegar and sugar in a small mixing bowl, refrigerate until ready to use.
In a skillet, brown bacon until crumbly. Remove from pan and add to broccoli, set aside. Add diced red onions to the bacon grease and saute until just translucent- you don't want them to get soft, just to release the flavours of the onion.
Add the onions to the broccoli, pour in a little of the bacon grease and mix together. Add the dressing mix and cheddar cheese, combine all and refrigerate for about an hour. Serve cold.
Makes 8-10 servings for company, make an additional bowl for yourself or DH, there won't be any left-overs!
2 Qts. rhubarb, diced
4 cups sugar
1-6 ounce box Strawberry Jello

Makes 10 Jelly Jars and lasts until DH finds it~Weeee!!!
