Summer is knocking at our door and it is time for picnics and cold salads. 
This is one I got from my mother in law and I love to make it all summer long. 
It is the Chopped Broccoli Salad.

Chop up one Large Red Onion

Fry up one Pound of Bacon (can do night before or morning )
Allow to cool and then crumble and put over onion and broccoli

Add 12oz bag of Shreadded Cheadder Cheese (over other chopped items)

Add 1 Cup of Miricle Whip (or equal salad dressing)
(if you dont have miricle whip use one cup mayo & one cup sugar



1 (1.5 lb.) boneless pork sirloin roast

1 1/2 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. Dijon style mustard
1 tsp. soy sauce

Add apple wedges to pan; continue to cook for additional 30-45 minutes, until inside temperature of roast is 155-160 degrees. Remove from oven; strain juices into saucepan into sauce pan and add water to make 1 cup.  Stir together cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water into bowl; add to saucepan; cook and stir over high heat until thickened and bubbly.
