Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad

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.
