1 to 2 heads broccoli (washed)
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 to 2 cups seedless grapes, washed and halved
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1-2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1-3 teaspoons sugar (to taste)

Cut broccoli into bite-size pieces. Combine broccoli, halved grapes, onion, and crumbled bacon pieces in large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix mayonnaise, ginger, nutmeg, and 1 t. sugar. Slowly add vinegar, mixing until it reaches a buttermilk like consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings. If it still tastes like mayo, continue to add more vinegar and small amounts of sugar until it becomes tangy and slightly sweet. Mix into broccoli mixture and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
