Savoury Sundays

Even though there is still snow on the ground, our family is already getting in the mood for Barbecues and Salads. I hardly have this salad in the winter but I LOVE preparing it in the Spring and Summer. I hope you make and enjoy it as much as my family...


2 eggs
½ cup sugar
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. dry mustard
¼ cup white wine vinegar
¼ cup water
½ cup mayonnaise

4 cups broccoli florets
½ cup raisins
8 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
½ cup toasted slivered almonds
10 oz. can mandarin oranges
½ red onion, sliced

To make dressing: In a saucepan, whisk together eggs, sugar, cornstarch and dry mustard. Add vinegar and water and cook slowly until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in mayonnaise. Cool.
To make salad: Marinate broccoli in dressing for several hours. Add remaining ingredients and toss well. Serves 6.
