Broccoli Salad – Dani Worth

broccoli salad

This family favorite is the number one requested dish for gatherings. The image is more cauliflower heavy because we were using some up that night, but normally this salad is loaded with beautiful green.

Broccoli Salad
1 bunch broccoli, separated into florets
1 head cauliflower, separated into florets
8 bacon strips, fried and crumbled
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped seeded tomatoes
3 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoons vinegar

Combine broccoli, cauliflower, bacon, onion, tomatoes and eggs. In small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar and mix until smooth. Poor dressing over salad and toss. This is great served immediately, but can also be made ahead and refrigerated to let the flavors settle. I sometimes add more eggs or substitute veggie bacon when serving to vegetarian friends and family.



Crux Survivors, Book 1

Seventeen years after the Crux Virus wiped out most of the world’s population, Ross is doing what he can to keep his small community safe from raiders in a self-contained artist retreat in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico. He’s made a habit of collecting survivors and they’ve all become family, but the most important members have always been Jenna and Dorian.

At fourteen, Ross stumbled into the basement where the nine-year-olds were hiding and the three have been together ever since. Years later, Jenna and Dorian became lovers. Now, at thirty, Ross hopes to find a love of his own on supply runs, but he suffers incredible guilt because his heart has long been snagged by his two best friends.

Alone with his tangled emotions, Ross is about to discover that his friends have their own ideas about their relationship…and how it is about to change.
