LaNell's Broccoli Salad


Now, do I know who LaNell is? No. But I can tell you that her broccoli salad is delicious!! I got this recipe from the Sugar Doodle website. We had this salad tonight with grilled chicken and strawberries and it was wonderful. I have a feeling I'll be making this a lot this summer because my husband and I couldn't get enough of it.

LaNell's Broccoli Salad

4-6 cups fresh broccoli florets
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup roasted and salted sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup cooked and crumbled bacon

Dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

In a bowl combine broccoli, onion, sunflower seeds, raisins, and bacon. In a separate bowl combine ingredients for dressing and mix well to mix in sugar. Pour desired amount of dressing over the broccoli mixture (I didn't use all of the dressing) and toss well to combine. Serve right away.*

*Make this salad right before serving - if it's left to sit it will get soggy.
