Fresh Broccoli Salad
3-4 head of broccoli - washed and chopped/broken in to bite size pieces - I also peel and chop the stems
1/4-1/2 cup crumbled bacon (sometimes I cheat and use the already cooked real bacon bits in a bag from Costco - I just microwave them for a minute to get them crispy)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/3-1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
1 cup mayo
1/2 cup sugar
3-4 tablespoons vinegar
mix mayo, sugar and vinegar together - toss with all other ingredients. Can serve immediately or chill and serve up to 48 hours later (gets softer with time).
We have been eating a lot of this salad this summer. It is yum!
