This salad is sweet and crunchy. Broccoli, crumbled bacon, raisins and sunflower seeds, with a smattering of onion tossed in a mayonnaise-based dressing. Delicious!

I make this but I do a couple of things differently that makes it so much more tasty. I put the mayo and the raisins in a blender and it makes the dressing much better. After mixing let it sit in the fridge over night. Add the sunflower seeds right before serving.

I used no raisins only 1 tablespoon sugar no other sweetener and scallions instead of onion. It got raves for Thanksgiving dinner and I have been asked to make it again for Christmas.

I loved this recipe! The only thing I would do different next time is to blanch or steam the broccoli just a little bit (my kids didn't care for the raw broccoli taste). I also only used sugar. Great!

After beginning to make this salad I realized all of my raisins had been eaten up by a "little mouse" (kids). So I used Craisins and it was delicious. Also the Craisins added color. Everyone enjoyed it and hubby wants me to make it again!

I made a "mistake" and put in horseradish mayo instead of plain. OMG. It is FANTASTIC! It's got a zip like sushi with wasabi sauce. I also tried adding some raw corn kernels (freshly trimmed off the cob) which made it even better.

I love this recipe but change it up a little. Sometimes I use maple flavored bacon and craisins.instead of raisins and no matter what bacon I use I always put about 3 tablespoons of the bacon grease in the salad along with the mayo and Splenda. The bacon grease gives a little extra flavor. Love this salad.

I made this for a potluck and followed the directions exactly except that I used turkey bacon (some people in our company don't eat pork). So good! Husband and I almost wanted to eat the entire bowl by ourselves and just buy something else for the potluck lol!

I just made it soo good! I did use the suggestion to process the dressing that way you can't tell there is raisins in it. Lol can't wait for the family to try it
