This is a delicious salad, and a great way to get those greens into your diet, as they’re kind of *in disguise* in this recipe! It’s crunchy with broccoli, salty with sunflower seeds, has bacon for protein and has sweetness from the raisins! Perfect with grilled chicken or as a side dish with a casserole, or in a big serving all by itself!

5 cups fresh broccoli florets

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup cooked, crumbled bacon

2 tablespoons vinegar

1/2 cup sugar

Combine broccoli, 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.
