Broccoli Salad

Want a perfect dish to make for a cookout?  Here you have it!

It tastes even better than it looks!

This is so delicious and it is always gone wherever I take it!  I know, I know I’m loading you guys up on some bangin’ cookout food, but I can’t really help it because I love summer and I love getting together with friends!  Also, this was made at my recipe party.

So, here you have it!

Here’s what you need:
2 heads fresh broccoli, washed and cut into small bite size pieces (smaller the better)
1/2 cup red onion
1/2 lb. bacon
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup golden raisons
2 1/2 tablespoons vinegar
1 cup mayo
1/3 cup sugar (I used splenda substitute)
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese (I omitted because husband doesn’t love cheese)

What you do is:
Mix sugar, vinegar and mayo together.  Mix everything else together in a separate bowl.  Combine and mix.  Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.


It's healthy too!

We enjoyed ours with a grilled burger (using lettuce as the bun!).   Take this to your next event and I promise people will be begging for the recipe!
