6 cups fresh broccoli florets trimmed to bite size
1/2 lg red onion, chopped
2/3 cup crisp bacon crumbles
2/3 cup glazed walnut pieces
11 ounces mandarin orange sections in juice well-drained, saving juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup juice from mandarin oranges
2 T rice vinegar
3 T sugar
1 tsp Aleppo pepper or ½ tsp crushed red pepper
In the bottom of a large salad bowl, combine all dressing ingredients & stir with a whisk until smooth.
Add broccoli, onion, bacon & walnuts to the dressing & toss until all broccoli is "well-dressed."
Add the orange segments, and toss very gently to keep oranges from breaking.
Serve chilled or at room temperature.
