BLT'S ONCE A DAY...YES. BLT'S THREE TIMES A DAY...?


I was in the garden this morning, picking tomatoes, dreaming of BLT's. This time of year always starts me on my BLT diet. It also starts me on the hunt for recipes that use tomatoes...let's face it, BLT's once a day....yes. BLT's three times a day, sometimes, but we thought we'd help break it up a little with this recipe by Paula Deen. Oh yes, and it's amazing with Edgewater BBQ...

BROCCOLI SALAD

Ingredient's:

1 head of Broccoli

6 to 8 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled

1/2 cup of chopped red onion

1/2 cup of raisins

8oz. sharp cheddar, cut into small chunks

1 cup of mayo

2 Tbs. white vinegar

1/4 cup sugar (if you are trying to go easy on sugar, use coconut sugar, my fav)

1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes

salt & freshly ground pepper

Direction's: Cut everything up and put it into a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine the mayo, sugar, vinegar and salt & pepper. Add to the broccoli mix and toss gently.

That's it. Simple. Yum.
