Broccoli Salad


  1. Chop broccoli into bite-size pieces. Chop onion and cook & crumble bacon.
  2. In a pot of boiling water, drop broccoli and cook for about 1 minute. Remove immediately and rinse with cold water (if you’re in a huge hurry, this step can be optional). Place in a large bowl.
  3. Add onion, cheese, bacon, raisins, and sunflower seeds to broccoli.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayo, vinegar and sugar. Pour over salad right before serving or allow the salad to “soften” with the dressing on for about 4 hours. You decide.
