Award Winning Broccoli Salad



I got this recipe from a friend, Carrie, about 6 years ago. It is an absolute favorite. It came from her Mom, and it was a big deal that I got it. There was a feud between my friend's Mom and another woman at her church over whose was better. This was a closely guarded secret..until now.

Broccoli Salad

1 broccoli head, cut in bite size or so pieces
10-12 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 onion chopped
1 cup raisins

Dressing
1 cup mayo
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar

Make dressing. Mix rest of ingredients. Add dressing right before serving. I have brought this to cookouts and everyone loves it. This is best the first day; although I have happily eaten leftovers the next day.

Cheers!

I've had this with red grapes instead of raisins and it's equally wonderful!! I've even made it with Splenda and still awesome.
