Yummy Cheesy Broccoli Salad

This afternoon since it hit 17 degrees Celsius I decided that the little man and I should go for a walk before Tim got home.  So when he woke up from his nap and had his lunch I loaded him up in the stroller and off we went to the local supermarket.  Right about when I was leaving my subdivision I wondered if I had bitten off more than I could chew, but we made it!!!  7km round trip.  My legs are sore now but it was nice.  Got my two books waiting at the library for me and also picked up dinner fixings which included this yummy yummy salad.  It is so good that Tim is eating the rest of it right now, for an after dinner snack!


1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried cranberries
3 cups broccoli florets, cut into small pieces
4 strips cooked bacon, chopped
2 x green onion, chopped
1/3 cup mayonnaise (use the real stuff, you won't be disappointed!)
3 Tbsps sour cream
1 tbsp lemon juice
3/4 cup grated medium Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste


Soak raisins and dried cranberries in hot tap water for a
minute or two, to soften. Drain and reserve.

1. Toss broccoli, bacon and green onion together. In a separate
bowl, stir mayonnaise, sour cream and lemon juice and stir
into broccoli mixture.

2.  Add cheddar cheese, raisins and dried
cranberries and season to taste.

3. Chill until ready to serve

Has to be one of the easiest salads I've ever made!

What do you think of our first attempt at better pictures?  Does it look any better?



Speaking from experience, it sure was yummy! Nothing quite hits the spot like hitting a big chunk of raisins and cheese!

It looks so yummy! Nice picture!
