Yummy Recipe Monday: Crunchy Broccoli Salad

This is so yum yum good. A lady at my church made it at a fish fry. I got the recipe from her Father. She got it from the Internet. And I skipped the peas. Felt it wasn't needed.

This great-tasting broccoli salad is packed with flavor and crunch, with raisins, sunflower seeds, and a tangy slightly sweetened mayonnaise dressing. I love the peas in the salad, but they can be left out.

Feel free to use pine nuts in this recipe instead of the sunflower seeds. Also, it's easy to reduce the sugar in this recipe. I add only a tablespoon or two of sugar and use light mayonnaise, and it's still delicious.

5 to 6 cups fresh broccoli florets
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup cooked, crumbled bacon
1/4 cup of red onion, chopped

1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons vinegar
1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar, or to taste
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: Serves 8

Combine the broccoli florets, raisins, sunflower seeds, crumbled bacon, chopped onion, and peas in a large serving bowl; toss to combine.

In a separate bowl or large cup, whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar, and sugar.

Add the dressing to the salad and toss to mix well; chill thoroughly before serving.

Broccoli salad serves 4 to 6.
