Farmer's Daughter

Although 20+ years removed from the farm, farmer's daughter is still a title I enjoy.
Growing up on a farm taught me many invaluable lessons, two of those being frugality and creativity.
Now as a wife and a mom, I love to put into practice what I learned growing up as a
Farmer's Daughter.

Broccoli Salad

Sometimes I just get tired of lettuce salad.

This is a nice change of pace. Broccoli, bacon, sunflower seeds, and raisins - I love fruit in salads!

1 medium bunch broccoli
1 medium purple onion
1/2 cup bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1 cup Miracle Whip
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 Tbsp. vinegar
1/3 cup sugar

Cut broccoli and onion into fine pieces. Add raisins, bacon and sunflower seeds. Mix dressing ingredients (Miracle Whip, vinegar and sugar) until well blended.

Pour over salad. Toss until well coated. Refrigerate before serving.

Yum Yum, this is one of my favorites, besides the Oriental Salad. I am actually thinking about running down to Marsh and picking up a cup form their salad bar. It’s just perfect for this nice weather.
