I can't get to the broccoli salad recipe. I remember my grandmother used to make a broccoli raisin carrot salad that was hot and was tossed with bacon drippings. Is it the same kind?

Oh, and your loaded baked potatoes reminds me of my loaded potato soup. It's basically runny mashed potatoes, but you toss in some sauted onions, garlic, and celery. Topped with cheese, bacon bits, and sour cream! :

Huh. The link worked for me. It's made with real bacon, just cook, drain, and crumble it. Then mix it with broccoli, onions, mozzarella. For the dressing, you use mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar - mix together, pour over broccoli mixture.

It's better made a day ahead.

Now it's working. But, it's not like the salad grandma makes. But I'm going to see her tomorrow - FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 15 YEARS!!!!!! (Sadly, it's because her "baby" boy died, but at least we can afford to go see her.)
