Broccoli Salad

This is another recipe that I am constantly looking up. I LOVE it:)

2 heads fresh broccoli
1 red onion (I use more like 1/2 an oinion)
1/2 pound bacon
3/4 cup craisins
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1 cup mayonnaise (I use light)
1/2 cup white sugar
2 TB white wine vinegar (or regular vinegar)

I like to slice my bacon in small pieces then cook until crisp.

Cut broccoli florets into bite-sized pieces and dice red onion. Combine with the bacon, Craisins, nuts and mix well.

Dressing: mix Mayo, sugar, vinegar together until smooth. Pour over salad, stir, let chill and serve.

I don't usually mix all the dressing on to the salad, it's a little too much in my opinion. SO I start with a good helping of dressing on the salad, and then just before serving judge how much more needs to be added to keep the salad moist with dressing, but not soggy.
