1/3 cup sugar

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1 pounds broccoli florets, chopped

cup chopped red onion

1/3 cup, packed, seedless raisins

4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled (turkey bacon may be substituted)

Place the oven rack in the middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees.

Place chopped pecans in single layer on a shallow pan and bake 6-8 minutes, or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally. Remove from the oven; cool to room temperature.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar together until combined; add broccoli, onion and raisins, gently stir and fold to coat. Cover and chill 2 hours. Sprinkle with bacon and pecans just before serving.

Serves 10.
