Broccoli with bacon

This was a tasty side dish. I would say to add salt to the water while cooking the broccoli.
Broccoli with bacon
"Southern Living Our Best Christmas Recipes"

Serving Size : 8

2 pounds fresh broccoli
6 slices bacon
3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts -- (see Note)
1/2 cup chopped green onions

Remove broccoli leaves, and cut off tough ends of stalks; discard. Wash broccoli thoroughly, and cut into spears. Cook broccoli spears in a small amount of boiling water 6 to 8 minutes or just until tender; drain. Set aside, and keep warm.

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp; remove bacon, reserving 3 tablespoons drippings in skillet. Crumble bacon, and set aside. Cook walnuts and green onions in drippings, stirring constantly, until green onions are tender. Add broccoli, and cook 1 minute, tossing gently. Transfer mixture to a serving dish; sprinkle with bacon.
