Erin’s Red Broccoli Salad

Our friends Erin and Matt have a lovely home in the country, surrounded by pastures and horses, and on the occasional holiday, a fireworks display on each horizon. We love gathering with friends there, especially when dishes like this are on the table.

Red onions, grapes, and bacon lend the red color to the otherwise green salad of broccoli, celery, and green onions.

Yield: 8 servings
