Broccoli Salad with Red Grapes, Bacon, and Sunflower Seeds
Try a flavor from the beaches of the eastern shore. This refreshing yet hearty family recipe has been adopted into the families of all of our friends. We never steam a bushel of crabs without having a huge bowl of this salad and corn on the cob on the table. This dish is simply mandatory at every BBQ, potluck or pitch-in event. Give it a try!
We never substitute the red grapes with raisins and we always use apple cider vinegar for this recipe. However, we sometimes substitute the sunflower seeds with chopped pecans or toasted sliced almonds.
Add the crumbled bacon and sunflower seeds when it's time to serve. If you hold off and wait, the bacon and sunflower seeds stay nice and crunchy therefore enhancing the overall texture and flavor. Mix well once added.
