This broccoli salad recipe is our absolute favorite! We have tweaked it a few times to get it just right. It’s so easy to make and a great salad to serve year round. It shows up at summer BBQ’s as well as our Christmas parties! We know you will like this one!
1 pound fresh broccoli (about 2 bunches) cut into small florets
1 medium red onion
1 cup grated cheese
8 strips of bacon (cooked crisp and crumbled)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
3/4 cup craisins
Broccoli Salad Dressing:
1 cup light mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl combine broccoli, onion, and grated cheese. Then add in bacon pieces, sunflower seeds, and craisins. Put in refrigerator while making the salad dressing below.
Mix well to dissolve sugar. Chill dressing for at least one hour before tossing with the salad. (You don't need to wait one hour, but the flavors combine better if you do.) Then pour dressing over broccoli salad and stir to coat.
