Ingredients:

  • 1 lb broccoli, cut into small pieces (raw)
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and cut into small pieces
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar

Directions:

  1. Add broccoli bacon, onion, cranberries and sunflower seeds together in a large bowl. Mix well. Add mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar and mix well until evenly coated.
  2. The key to cold salads is to chill well. I find that most mayonnaise based salads are better if you can chill overnight. An hour is minimum, but overnight is defiantly preferred.
  3. Give the salad another good stir before serving.
