  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) walnuts or pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • In a large mixing bowl, add and toss together, the broccoli, florettes, celery, water chestnuts, green onions, green grapes, red grapes, apple, red onion, bacon, walnuts or pecans, and set aside.
  • Next in a medium mixing bowl, mix together and blend well the mayonnaise, sugar, lemon juice, cider vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour the dressing mixture over the broccoli mixture and gently toss and fold in the dressing until all the vegetalbes are coated.
  • Chill for 3-4 hours before serving.
Note: You can use other vegetable in conjunction with the broccoli, such as kohlrabi, cauliflower, turnips, jicama, or even packaged cabbage slaw mixes. Cut or slice the additonal choices into bite-sized pieces or julienned. Also, dried cherries, cranberries, or raisins are an excellent addition. Add sunflower seeds or slivered almonds.. this is a very versatile salad, a good one to finish up tag ends of leftover vegetables or fruits. Even pineapple in it is delicious!
