First things first: This is not my recipe. I borrowed it from Luke Brown’s Cooking in the Midwest website and fell head over heels in love with it.
The Husband and I love broccoli salad and I have a different variation using raisins, but when I saw this one called for cranberries and sunflower seeds, I had to give it a try.
And…oh my yum!
I just made a batch for our Memorial Day staycation.
You should try it too!
1 head of broccoli chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 handful sunflower seeds
4 chopped green onions
1 handful dried cranberries
5 pieces crumbled bacon
1 cup of mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
2 TBSP white vinegar
HOW TO MAKE IT
Cook bacon and chop into small pieces; cut broccoli into smaller pieces and add to a bowl.
Add cheese, bacon, sunflower seeds, chopped green onions and cranberries to the broccoli.
In a separate bowl mix mayo, sugar, vinegar and add to the broccoli.
Chill for a couple hours before serving and enjoy!
