This salad should really be called "Bacon and Mayonnaise Salad with a Tiny Broccoli Garnish." I can't believe other reviewers mentioned adding additional meat - there's a POUND of bacon in here, people! I knew ahead of time that we'd find that overwhelming, so I used less than a half a pound, and it was still too bacon-y. I ended up adding an extra three cups of broccoli to try and cut the bacon a bit. If you're a bacon lover, go for it, but it was too much for us. If I make it again, I won't use any more than three slices. (I did add twice the raisins and sunflower seeds called for, which I'd do again. And we both really liked the dressing; I used the full amount of vinegar, but only 3/8 cup of sugar.)
