Farmer's Wife Salad

Posted by Lori:

Here is another recipe I made for our school's FFA auction/fundraiser this week.  It came from the Gooseberry Patch Quick & Easy Family Favorites Cookbook, as well.  This salad was really good and was almost gone when I went to pick up my bowl.  It's definitely a keeper!  

My sister-in-law mentioned on the bread salad that maybe garden fresh tomatoes would have tasted better to me.  I'm absolutely positive that it would have.  Nothing beats straight from the garden tomatoes!  Too bad our part of the world didn't grow any last summer.  It was too hot, I suppose.  The little tomatoes (sweet cherubs, I think) make an "OK" substitute, but still there is no comparison.  (Makes me excited about planting our garden this summer!)

(What a cool name for this salad!  If it were me it would say "Goat Man's Wife Salad! :)

1 head broccoli, chopped
1 head romain lettuce, torn
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup mayonnaise-type salad dressing
3 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 Tablespoons vinegar
3/4 pound bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled

Combine broccoli, lettuce and tomatoes in a large bowl.  Combine salad dressing, sugar and vinegar in a separate medium bowl, pour over lettuce mixture and toss to coat.  Sprinkle with bacon.  Chill before serving.  Serves 8.

oh, yah, definitely. My friend makes this and adds shredded cheddar to it. Our Bunko group gets on to her if she doesn't make it when it's her turn to host!
