Broccoli Salad with Sunflower Seeds & Cranberries
This salad is so fresh and crunchy and there are never leftovers when I make it! The marriage of all the wonderful flavors might even convert someone who does not like broccoli!!
2-3 broccoli crowns (just the florets) finely chopped (5-6 cups)
10 bacon slices, crisp-cooked and crumbled
1/3 cup red onion, diced
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup dried cranberries, chopped (golden raisins are equally good)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 tsp. sugar
salt and pepper
In a large bowl add broccoli, bacon, red onion, sunflower seeds, and cranberries.
In a small bowl, whisk the mayo, vinegar, and sugar.
Pour dressing mixture over salad and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve (at least one hour).
