Broccoli Salad

This is a great salad to take with you to pot lucks – you can make it the night before and it is even better for having sat for a few hours. It’s also very healthy so you know that there will be at least one option helping you to get your servings of calcium, green vegetables and protein. Broccoli also has loads of iron!

2 heads broccoli
1/2 cup chopped red onion
6-8 slices bacon *optional but yummy
1 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup raisins
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup sugar

Fry bacon until crispy, drain grease and set aside.

Cut up broccoli flowerets into bite-sized pieces, leaving just a little stem. Cut up enough for about 4 cups of flowerets.

Add onion, cheese and seeds and raisins.In a separate bowl combine remaining ingredients to make a dressing. Toss with broccoli mixture

Refrigerate 2-3 hours or overnight.

Crumble bacon into bits, add to bowl and toss salad just before serving.
