Broccoli Salad

adapted from Angela's Kitchen

Yield:  4-6 large servings


5 cups fresh broccoli florets (about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds) A bag of florets from Costco works great!

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1 small red onion, small chop

8 slices bacon, chopped, cooked and drained

Salt and pepper, to taste


1 cup mayonnaise

2 Tbsp cider vinegar

1/4 cup sugar

Prepare the dressing:  Mix together all of the ingredients and refrigerate for two hours.  (Taste the dressing to make certain that it has a ratio of vinegar to sugar that pleases your palate.)

Prepare the salad:  Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl.  Dress with the chilled dressing before serving.

Note:  All of the salad ingredients may be measured and placed in ziplocks until you are ready to eat or taken to a potluck and mixed just before serving.
