On Sunday my harvest basket was flush with broccoli. Since we have loads of bacon in the freezer to eat up, I settled on making broccoli salad for quick lunches this week. I pulled dried cranberries from a local farm from the pantry, along with pecans sent to me by a generous blog reader. I grabbed a large egg from the chicken coop and olive oil purchased from Chaffin Family Orchard from the pantry and whipped up a batch of mayonnaise for the dressing.
For the dressing I mixed homemade mayo, local honey, and homemade yogurt. Then I added the broccoli, crumbled bacon, diced red onions from the garden along with pecans and cranberries. After seasoning with salt & pepper our lunches were ready for the week. Quick, healthy and delicious, a cold salad like this on a hot day is perfect.
