Happy May Day

May Day basket ideas perfect for that special someone who loves chocolate and flowers

Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out values all the utilities of the world.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844

A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.  
~Walt Whitman

Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.  

~Gerard de Nerval
Broccoli Salad
Cook’s notes: For easier prep fry bacon and chop broccoli, red onion the day before, store in a plastic zip loc bag and refrigerate
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 small red onion
  • 6 strips of bacon-fried crisp and diced
  • ½ cup raisins or craisins or 1-1/2 cups red grapes sliced in half
  • 1 cup shelled sunflower seeds
  • 1 small package of shredded 3 color Coleslaw Mix (carrots, green and red cabbage found in produce) 

  • 1-cup lite mayonnaise or lite Miracle Whip
  • 2 TB. white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • Mix salad ingredients and chill while making dressing mixture
  • Mix dressing with salad ingredients 1/2 hour before serving and return bowl to refrigerator
  • If need more dressing make ½ mixture more: ½ cup lite mayo, 1 TB. vinegar, 1/8 cup sugar
