Crunchy Broccoli Salad

I made this salad for Father's day and everyone absolutely loved it! I can't wait to make it again.

Crunchy Broccoli Salad

1 bunch green onions, sliced
1 large head broccoli, cut into small pieces
1 pound bacon, cooked and cut into small pieces
2 (3 ounce) packages Ramen noodles, crushed. Discard seasoning packet
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup pecans chopped or sliced almonds

Mix butter, nuts and crushed noodles. Spread on a cookie sheet and back at 350 degrees until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. About 10 minutes. Set aside to cool completely.

Add broccoli, onions, lettuce, bacon and noodle/nut mixture in a large bowl. Toss with dressing right before serving.
