I had this salad at a family reunion for the first time this summer. I was skeptical for two reasons- 1) I don’t like raisins and 2) I don’t like anything that resembles miracle whip. Boy, was I wrong! LOVE THIS SALAD! So did the hubby. He said, “This is pretty good for fruity food.” Yep. That’s a compliment.

Broccoli Salad

  • 10 slices bacon
  • 1 head fresh broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds

Fry the bacon until crispy. Drain on a paper towel, then crumble. Combine the onion, broccoli, and raisins. Pour over broccoli mixture, and toss until well mixed. Refrigerate for at least two hours. Toss the salad with crumbled bacon and sunflower seeds when ready to serve. Serves 6.
