Broccoli Salad

This recipe is incredible. I mean, what other salad is there that is this easy to prepare, is loaded with this nutrients, is actually so hearty, we sometimes eat it as a meal by itself, tastes so good you might not even know it's 'rabbit food,' and even tastes better the second day?

You'll need:

  • 5 cups of fresh broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup diced red onions
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese
  • 1/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup chopped, crispy bacon
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise or light salad dressing
To make the Dressing, stir sugar, vinegar, and mayo together until well blended.

Next: layer 'em up! It doesn't really matter which order you decide to do the layers in, since you'll be mixing it up before serving anyway. But if you like the looks of the one above than you can layer as follows:

  • broccoli
  • red onions
  • sunflower seeds
  • raisins
  • bacon
  • dressing
  • shredded cheese

Just before serving, mix throughly. After serving, enjoy! After enjoying... well... you'll probably be back in the kitchen making some more. Whoever came up with this recipe is nothing short of a genius.
