Ingredients
  1. Broccoli (you can use a head of broccoli and cut up or be lazy like me and buy it already cut up)
  2. 1/2 cup raisins
  3. 1/2 red onion chopped fine
  4. 6-8 pieces of cooked bacon chopped
  5. 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  6. 1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheese
  7. 1 cup mayonaise
  8. 2 tbs vinegar
  9. 1/4 cup sugar
Instructions
  1. Chop up broccoli and place in a good sized bowl. Chop 1/2 of a red onion. Add 1/2 cup raisins, 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, 1/4 cup of sugar, 2 tbs vinegar, 1 cup shredded cheese, 1 cup mayo. Stir together and place in refridgerator for 2 hours before serving. This allows the beautiful flavors to meld. If you'd like to hold off on the onions until right before serving you can. To me onions are very powerful and I don't really want them melding. Ha! Serve as a side dish to anything from barbecue, chicken or pork chops. It's a delicious side and so easy to make. My family eats this up quickly when I make it. So check it out and make it for yourself.
