"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!" — Dawn

broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces
1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
unsalted sunflower seeds
granular sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda®)
white wine vinegar
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!
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!
