The secret to this recipe is the sorghum in the dressing. Golden, sweet sorghum tastes best, if available. Otherwise you may need to adjust the quantity to taste.
2 bunches raw broccoli, cut apart
1/2 red onion, diced
1 can sliced water chestnuts
1/2 cup raisins
10 to 12 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
In a large serving bowl, combine vegetables and raisins.
1 cup real mayonnaise
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons golden sorghum
1 tablespoon vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Combine dressing ingredients in a jar and shake well (or whisk in a bowl). Pour over salad, and allow to marinate 1 to 3 hours.
Stir in crumbled bacon just before serving.
