Broccoli Salad

Serves: 4

This salad has been a staple in my home for years. I don't blanch the broccoli - we like it raw.

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:


4 ounces bacon
sea salt, to taste
2 1/2 cups small fresh broccoli florets
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup craisins or raisins
1/4 cup sunflower kernel


Cut the bacon into small pieces with kitchen shears and cook over medium heat just until crisp; drain on paper towels.

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli and blanch until bright green and slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Drain well, run under cold water to stop the cooking, and drain again. (skip this step, if desired, and use the broccoli raw)

In a mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, onion, sugar and craisins/raisins. Add the broccoli and toss the coat with the dressing. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Just before servings, fold in the sunflower kernels and the bacon pieces. Serve immediately.
