This is a classic potluck salad recipe! There are variations that use cashews instead of sunflower seeds, red onion instead of white onion, but bacon, crisp broccoli, and a slaw dressing are always the base of this delicious salad. This version came from my Aunt Vicki!
1 head broccoli (I use a little more. Sometimes, I’ll buy the bag of already cut broccoli.)
1 lb. bacon
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup white onion, chopped
Cut the broccoli into bite-sized pieces and rinse well. Microwave until it’s crisp. Fry and chop the bacon. Combine the broccoli, bacon, sunflower seeds, raisins, and onion in a serving bowl.
1 cup mayo
2 T white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
Mix all of the dressing ingredients together and add to the salad. Mix well. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
