Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad


  • 8 cups of fresh broccoli
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 3/4 cup raisins or craisins or you could use half and half ( I pre-soak them so they are nice and plump)
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl (minus the dressing ingredients.) Set aside.
  2. For the dressing: In a separate bowl, add the mayo and sugar. Mix.
  3. Mix in the vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour over the broccoli mixture, toss and refrigerate the salad up to 3 hours. (This allows the flavors to meld.)
  5. Season with more salt and pepper and serve!
