  • Total: 1 hr 15 min (includes chilling time)
  • Active: 15 min


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 


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

Perfect broccoli salad!!! My whole family loved it and it tasted even better the next day. I replaced the raisins with craisins (only because I’m not a huge raisin person). And I also reduced the mayonnaise slightly and added in a bit of plain Greek yogurt. Will definitely make this again! Thank you.
