With the warm weather here I am starting to break out all of my summer recipes! I love broccoli salad. Not only is it easy, there is just something about the salty sweet that makes this side dish a summer favorite.
1 Head Broccoli, Chopped
1 lb. Bacon
3/4 Cup Raisins
3/4 Cup Sunflower Seeds
1 Cup Mayonnaise
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
In a larger frying pan, fry the bacon until crisp. Cut the bacon into small pieces- use kitchen shears to make this task easy. Cut broccoli florets into bite size pieces. In a large bowl combine broccoli, bacon, raisins and sunflower seeds.
In a small bowl combine mayonaise, sugar and vinegar. Mix until combined. Pour sauce over broccoli mixture. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- If you don’t have raisins, try using sliced grapes.
- Turkey bacon is a leaner option. Or consider cutting pack on the amount of bacon- maybe a 1/2 pound.
