Broccoli Raisin Salad

Broccoli Raisin Salad

1 bunch broccoli
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1 pound bacon, fried and crumbled
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raisins

3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar

Prepare veggies, and bacon, and mix together with sunflower seeds and raisins.

Mix dressing ingredients; pour over broccoli mixture.

Serves 8-10

Note: I always like to work ahead as much as possible when preparing a meal for a larger group. Such was the case recently when twelve family members were home for a meal together. It worked great to prepare all the various ingredients for this salad the day before, and store them all in the refrigerator. Then shortly before the meal the next day, I just mixed them all together very easily. A freshly made salad ready in a few minutes!

Special note: this delicious recipe was shared with me by one of my daughters, who received it from a friend of hers.  (Thanks, Carrie!)
