Sunny Broccoli Salad

on October 16, 2012
Thank you Beth for sharing this tasty dish! I’m always looking for new ways to get my kids to get veggies.
This is a Lipinski family favorite – it’s not a family gathering without it (and, it’s a required left-over as well, so multiplying the recipe is a must). I do a lot of eyeballing for the dry ingredients of this recipe and adjust as I taste it. 
1 bunch broccoli – cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 lb bacon fried and crumbled
1/2 C sunflower seeds
1/2 C raisins
4 Tbsp minced onions
Marinade:
1/2 C Mayo – do NOT use miracle whip – it won’t taste the same
2 Tbsp Vinegar (use white vinegar or it will look gross)
2 Tbsp sugar
4 tsp milk (I used Rice Milk for the swap)
 
Toss salad ingredients except sunflower seeds with marinade.  Allow to set at least 2 hours before serving. The longer the flavors blend, the better.  Toss the sunflower seeds in just before serving to keep them crisp.
