Recipe: Broccoli Crunch Salad

As I mentioned in the last podcast, we returned from Cape Cod Sunday night and for sanity's sake, I also took Monday off -- which of course, I had planned for a whole day of knitting! But (of course) there were other things I needed to do like laundry, dishes, and what the hey, dinner. (The crock-pot lives!) 

In addition, I also made a bold attempt to re-create one of my favorite dishes (from Stop n' Shop's deli, no less!). Usually when me and the Mister hit up the beach, it's my go-to, on-the-go lunch. For some reason, I always order it-- probably because it's SOOOO goood! Broccoli, Zucchini, raisins, BACON!!! What more could you ask for? Anyway, it turned out very well. If you're interested, here's the recipe:
