Kara's Ridiculously Easy Rainbow Salad
2 heads of broccoli, chopped (green!)
1/2 red onion, finely diced (purple!)
1 large carrot, shredded or finely chopped (or, do what I did and use a veggie peeler to make short, small strips) (orange!)
handful of baco bits (can also use a few strips of real bacon, cooked crispy, dried and crumbled) (red!)
handful of raisins, I used golden raisins because they're prettier (and yellow)
3/4 cup of vegannaise (or mayo) - you may need more depending on how many veggies you've used
splash of apple cider vinegar - 2-3 tbsp.
2-3 tbsp brown sugar
Whisk together mayo, vinegar and sugar. It should be thick, but thin enough to pour easily.
Assemble veggies/raisins/bits in large bowl, pour mayo mixture over and mix together very well
Chill in fridge for an hour before serving.
My better half doesn't like baco bits; otherwise, I think this would have been a major success at dinner tonight.
Rainbow Salad sounds a lot better than Broccoli Salad.
I had a request for vegan recipes awhile ago - (e:matthew), this one's for you!

3 1/2 cups unbleached flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup skim milk powder
1 tablespoon (or 1 package) dry yeast
3 1/2 cups lukewarm chicken or meat broth
Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm chicken or meat broth. The richer this broth is, the better your dog will like the biscuits. Let yeast broth mixture set 10 min. Then stir in flour mixture. Roll resulting dough out 1/4" thick. Cut dog biscuit shapes from dough. Brush biscuits with egg wash. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 300* for 45 min. Then turn off oven and leave in overnight to finish hardening. Makes 60 medium-sized biscuits.
I have a dog biscuit shaped cookie cutter all ready to go.

Her album? Her CHRISTMAS SINGING ALBUM? That's just wrong.
Who wants to share their holiday cookie recipes? I'm making my Kara Kanes again, and probably a selection of chocolate covered treats, boiled cookies, and bone-shaped dog biscuits for the puppies in my life.

I love (e:jenks) ' Heifer international idea, but I don't think any of the above would fully appreciate it.
