Blount Today

I was so happy when my nephew Nathan told our family that his mother- and father-in-law would be attending our Thanksgiving gathering. I knew that a Thanksgiving visit from Jenny Swafford would mean something delicious added to our Thanksgiving table.

Jenny didn’t disappoint. She brought a great salad that she simply calls "All-Time, All-Occasion Favorite Salad."

It’s a simple recipe, but should hit the spot as we move out of one heavy holiday and into the eating season. This salad makes a great side dish or a great lunch that will enable you to save room for the seasonal goodies.

Speaking of "goodies," next week’s Blount Today will feature a special section called Holiday Treats. I have put together some Christmas recipes that I hope you will enjoy, and they will be featured in a special pull-out section of your Blount Today. Don’t miss it!

Jenny’s All-Time,
Favorite Salad

1 small purple onion, chopped
1 medium head cauliflower (cut into bite size pieces)
1 large bunch broccoli (cut into bite size pieces)
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
6 strips of bacon, fried and crumbled

1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar

Combine all ingredients except bacon. Toss with dressing. Sprinkle bacon on top just before serving.
