It's a recipe that I've been doing for years though mine used 1/4 of a cup of sugar and apple cider vinegar rather than white vinegar. It gives it different taste. If you make it ahead of time put the sunflower seeds at the last minute or they get all soft and lose their crunch!

I made this recipe without the sunflower seeds and it was awesome! A great summer salad and fun way to get the kids to eat broccoli! Next time I'll try it with the sunflower seeds. The sauce in this salad is amazing! You can keep adding more broccoli raisins and bacon after it gets thinned out and it tastes even better after sitting for a day in the frig.:) excellent!

This is a great broccoli salad. I've made it with regular and golden raisins; red and white onions...still tastes great! I don't use as much bacon or raisins. I recommend making dressing ahead first to give sugar time to dissolve.

I recently had this at a cookout. The combo of raisins & red onion was so good but I was told that her recipe was a secret. I'll be making this for a house warming party soon. So glad I found the recipe.

I used apple cider vinegar with the mayo and sugar plus I added some salt and pepper which always helps in any dressing. I also used slivered almonds mixed in like the raisins instead of just sunflower seeds over top. Excellent recipe! Thanks for sharing.
