Broccoli Salad

This is a old recipe that was always at seasonal events like Easter Dinner, Thanksgiving, or Christmas and even New Years.

Make it ahead and keep it for a few days as it improved in the fridge.

1/2 cup of dried cranberries/ or raisins
2 tb mayonnaise
2 tb pure maple syrup

Make salad dressing with mayonnaise, maple syrup, and rice vinegar (white vinegar is readily available at most grocery stores)
Add bacon 

Pour over broccoli florets. Stir in cranberries or raisins, slivered almonds and chopped green onion .
Make this salad at least 6 hours ahead. Makes 4-5 servings.
