There are so many versions of this salad out there,but after taking 2 or three I made this one up myself, and I like it best! I love the bacon, and the sweetness of the dressing it is delicious and always a crowd favorite. My kids really like this as well.
1 large bunch broccoli, washed, cut in florets
1 small red onion, chopped
1/2 lb. bacon, cooked CRISP, crumbled
1/2 small bag mozzarella cheese
2 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
1 handful raisins
1 Tbsp. vinegar
1/2 c. mayo
1/4 c. sugar
1- Add your broccoli florets, crumbled bacon, chopped onion, cheese and rasins to a large serving bowl.
2- In a small mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients for the sauce and mix well. The texture of this will be "grainy" because of the sugar.
3- Pour dressing over your broccoli mixture, stir well to coat
4- Sprinkle sunflower seeds and over the top.
5- Cover and refrigerate, serve chilled.
