- 2 heads of broccoli (flowerets only) – cut into bite-size pieces
- ¼ cup raisins
- ¼ cup green onion, finely chopped

- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- Freshly ground pepper, to taste

***Last-minute additions:
- 2 strips bacon, sliced, then browned
- 2 tablespoons toasted sunflower seeds


In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, garlic powder, and pepper. Blend together until smooth; set aside for flavors to meld.

In a medium dry skillet heat to medium heat, and add the sunflower seeds and toast just a couple of minutes just until fragrant (do not burn). Remove to a small bowl and set aside. In the same skillet raise temp. to medium-high, add the bacon slices and cook until crispy. Remove and let cool on paper-towel covered plate.

In medium bowl, combine all salad ingredients and pour dressing onto broccoli mixture. Toss salad to combine, and refrigerate 30 minutes prior to serving.

Just before serving, finely chop the bacon into small bits, and add to mixture, along with the sunflower seeds. Toss the salad, serve, and enjoy!


Tip: At times I’ll add radish slices. BTW: Leftovers are delicious...if there are any. Also, this is an often-requested salad for gatherings!
