"This salad is sweet and crunchy. Broccoli, crumbled bacon, raisins and sunflower seeds, with a smattering of onion tossed in a mayonnaise-based dressing. Delicious!"

Halved the recipe...steamed the broccoli for about 2 minutes....used just sugar....EXCELLENT! Thank you!
I make this, but I do a couple of things differently that makes it so much more tasty. I put the mayo and the raisins in a blender and it makes the dressing much better. After mixing, let it sit in the fridge over night. Add the sunflower seeds right before serving.
I loved this recipe! The only thing I would do different next time is to blanch or steam the broccoli just a little bit (my kids didn't care for the raw broccoli taste). I also only used sugar. Great!
I made a "mistake" and put in horseradish mayo instead of plain. OMG. It is FANTASTIC! It's got a zip like sushi with wasabi sauce. I also tried adding some raw corn kernels (freshly trimmed off the cob) which made it even better.
After beginning to make this salad, I realized all of my raisins had been eaten up by a "little mouse" (kids). So I used Craisins and it was delicious. Also, the Craisins added color. Everyone enjoyed it and hubby wants me to make it again!
I just made it, soo good! I did use the suggestion to process the dressing that way you can't tell there is raisins in it. Lol can't wait for the family to try it
Perfect, simple and classic. I am a CNA for an Assisted Living Home and cook a lot on the overnight shift. This salad was requested and this recipe was touted by all of the tenants! Many many thanks!!!!
I used no raisins, only 1 tablespoon sugar, no other sweetener and scallions instead of onion. It got raves for Thanksgiving dinner and I have been asked to make it again for Christmas.
