Broccoli Salad

This one is a BBQ/pot luck favorite. I’ve had friends stash it away when there is 1/2 of it left so they can eat it the next day. Yup, they don’t want to share this one. So make lots…lol

Broccoli salad
2-3 pounds broccoli florettes cut into bite size pieces
3 quarts salted water, boiling
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups red grapes, halved

Put the broccoli into the boiling salted water for about 3 minutes. It should be bright green and softened just a little, not mushy at all. Drain and chill quickly (run some cold water over it until it isn’t steaming any more) and leave in colander until dry. Mix up the mayo, sugar, salt, pepper and lemon juice until smooth. Toss dressing with walnuts, grapes and broccoli. Keep in fridge until serving time.
