- 8 ounces bacon
- 5 cups small broccoli florets
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 1/3 cup chopped onion
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup sunflower kernels
Cut the bacon into small pieces 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.
Just before servings, fold in the sunflower kernels and the bacon pieces. Serve immediately.
