I could eat this all day. Veggies have never tasted so good as the broccoli does in this salad. I ate it at a neighborhood get together and had to have the recipe! I made a couple of alterations to the original, but I can't get enough! This would be a perfect side to bring to a summer get-together or just to have in the fridge to snack on. Either way, it will not last long!
8 C of washed and chopped broccoli (small pieces of broccoli without much of the thick stem on it)
1 lb cooked and crumbled crispy bacon
1 C unsalted sunflower seeds or sliced almonds
2/3 C craisins
1/4 C red onion, very finely chopped
1 C mayonnaise
1 TBSP white wine vinegar
1/2 C sugar
Combine the mayonnaise, white wine vinegar, and sugar in a bowl and set it aside.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl.
Drizzle the dressing over the broccoli mixture and stir until the entire mixture is coated.
Refrigerate until ready to serve (the salad is served chilled).
