Broccoli Salad

5 cups fresh broccoli florets
½ cup raisins
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup cooked, crumbled bacon
¼ cup red onion, chopped
Optional: 1 cup of frozen peas, thawed

1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
2 tablespoons vinegar
½ cup sugar
2 tablespoons milk
salt and pepper to taste

Combine broccoli florets, raisins, sunflower seeds, crumbled bacon, chopped onion, and peas in a large serving bowl. In a separate bowl or large cup, whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Add dressing to the salad and toss to mix well; chill thoroughly before serving.

Serves 4 to 6

I love recipes that use fresh vegetables! I use light mayonnaise and usually add more broccoli than the recipe calls for.
