"This nutty and fruity broccoli salad is a big hit at potlucks! The recipe was given to me by my Aunt Rossanne. She is the best cook ever! To bulk up the salad, you can add an extra cup of broccoli."

This is a great, easy salad for summer parties. However, I doubled the broccoli in order to make enough for 8 people. I also left out the sunflower seeds and used pre-cooked bacon bits, and it...

Very tastey salad! I especially like the dressing on this one. I use it for coleslaw, too.
