Broccoli Salad

•2-3 bunches of broccoli, raw and cut into bite size pieces (not a lot of the stem)
•1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled (you can use the cooked, bagged kind works great...no mess!)
•1 small red onion, chopped into small pieces
•1 cup raisins
•1/3 cup sunflower seeds (just the seeds...no shells.)
•3/4 cup mayonnaise
•1/2 cup sugar
•1 and 1/2 Tablespoons white vinegar

Directions:

•In a large bowl, mix chopped raw broccoli, cooked bacon, chopped onion, raisins and sunflower seeds and set aside.
•In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise, sugar and white vinegar to make the dressing. Pour over the broccoli mixture and mix well.
•Refrigerate for a few hours so flavors mix. I made mine in the morning and served around dinner time. Still very tasty days later too...if it lasts that long. This one is always popular!
•One tip: You may want to double the dressing recipe (mayo, sugar, vinegar) just in case your heads of broccoli are large. Dress the salad with as much as you'd like according to your own taste though.
