This is a yummy summer salad that uses an interesting combination of fruits, vegetables and meats. Before you decide you won’t like it, try it. You’ll be pleasantly surprised. You can add an extra head of broccoli, if you like.
2 heads fresh broccoli
3⁄4 cup sunflower seeds
1⁄2 red onion cut into thin bite-sized slices
1 cup mayonnaise
1⁄2 pound bacon
1⁄2 cup white sugar
3⁄4 cup raisins or red grapes cut in half
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Black pepper to taste
- Place bacon in a deep skillet and cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Cool and crumble.
- Cut the broccoli into bite-size pieces and cut the onion into thin bite-size slices. Combine with the bacon raisins or grapes, and mix well.
- To prepare the dressing, mix the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar together until smooth. Stir into the salad. Best to chill it in refrigerator to let the flavors mingle. Add the sunflower seeds and bacon just before serving.
