2 bunches broccoli, florets only (5 to 6 cups florets-I chop mine up pretty finely instead of leaving them in hunks)
½ cup medium red onion, chopped
2/3 cup raisins
8 – 10 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
1/2 cup sunflower seed kernels, salted
1 cup mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip)
½ cup sugar
2 teaspoons vinegar
When I make the dressing, I add more vinegar (and sometimes more sugar) as I like the sweet/tart combination. I also use light mayo and have used sugar substitute as well. This dressing mix is what I use for coleslaw as well.
Combine salad ingredients; top with dressing mixture just prior to serving so broccoli doesn’t get soggy.
