The Summer Salad Season is here. We're scheduled to reach over 100 degrees by supper time today, so heating up the house while the A/C is running just isn't practical. We're going to be grilling steaks outside this evening, and I whipped up a batch of this new recipe I brought back from our recent trip to the Hill Country of Texas. Fresh and bright, and above all else, cool and flavor-filled!
4 cups fresh broccoli florets 1 small purple onion, sliced thin 1/2 cup raisins 1/2 cup chopped pecans 1 (11 oz) can of mandarin orange segments (drained)
3/4 cup mayonnaise 1/4 cup sugar 1 1/2 tbsp white vinegar
Combine broccoli florets, red onion, raisins and pecans in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix dressing ingredients. Blend well and then add to the broccoli mixture.
Gently fold in mandarin orange slices.
Refrigerate 3 hours to allow flavors to meld, and dressing to seep into vegetables.
