This was a big winner, even tho our Cardinals lost...Boy was I glad I TRIPPLED the recipe for the Super Bowl party yesterday. Mine was the ONLY salad/veggie at a party with a good 25 people. It got scarfed. I did modify a little. Based on a couple of other suggestions, I added extra Vinegar--DON'T!! it made the dressing turn very watery while it chilled for 3 hours. Next time I will follow the measurements. I used half Sour cream and half mayo and it was lighter and tastier too. I used Cranberries, sunflower kernals, and for this triple batch I added most of a whole bunch of sliced celery for extra crunch and a bit over 3T of Sweet Hungarian Paprika from Penzeys. Also some grinds of fresh blk pepper, and replaced half the sugar with Equal (the blue stuff) I had a really large red onion and it smelled pretty strong when I cut it, so I diced it really small, and blanched it under running water from my little boiling water tap--30 seconds max, then shocked under cold...I also used a total of only o1 lb of bacon to six big bundles of brocolli--no one complained there wasn't enough bacon. I bought the cranberries dried at my local store in bulk and the sunflower seeds that way too. Brocolli was on sale and I made a huge vat of salad (probably about 3 gallons) for under $20. Everyone asked for the recipe and even the men went back for seconds. All I had was some juice and stray sunflower seeds left. Will make again fore sure and will try All Equal instead of sugar next.
