This is an adapted version of Aunt Betty Ann's broccoli salad. I think it's a close relative of broccoli slaw... but my family always talks about it referencing my great aunt.
1-2 heads broccoli, cut into florets
1 small red onion, chopped (I used a shallot)
6-8 slices bacon, well-cooked and crumbled (I used French lardons)
2-3 carrots, grated
1 small wedge purple cabbage, chopped
Dressing: Whisk until smooth.
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
2 Tbsp white vinegar
2 Tbsp sugar
1/4 cup light cream
freshly ground pepper
Mix vegetables. Pour dressing over top and stir until coated. Refrigerate at least two hours.
