broccoli salad for 250 people
sandra shell
I was checking out big pots/and could not find recipe for broccoli salad for 250 people/the one with crisp bacon,red onions,etc. Could you give me the recipe for at least 100 and can go from there? Thank You
For 100, as "not the only salad":

15 pounds broccoli florets blanched OR may use part broccoli slaw) (thats about 25 pounds raw)
8 cups crumbles of crisp bacon
4 cups chopped red onion (or fine rings)
8 cups frozen peas (some people use raisins)
8 cups slivered toasted almonds or walnuts

3 quarts to 1 gallon mayo
2 cups cider vinegar
4 cups honey

Blanch the florets: boil salted water, cook just 1 minute; turns bright green. Plunge into ice water to stop the cooking.

Whisk up the dressing. Put all the stuff except the nuts on the broccoli, pour on the dressing and toss. Shortly before serving, sprinkle on the nuts and toos
