I found it on AllRecipes (my fave recipe site). It is YUMMY!

INGREDIENTS
1 head fresh broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
2 tablespoons white sugar
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sunflower seeds
10 slices bacon
DIRECTIONS
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Crumble and set aside.
In a salad bowl, toss together broccoli, raisins and red onions. In a separate bowl, whisk together the white sugar, vinegar and mayonnaise. Pour over broccoli mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Before serving, sprinkle with sunflower seeds and crumbled bacon. Toss and serve.
We use this recipe almost to a T (except I toss in some red grapes & for the dressing I use Rice Wine vinegar). It is by far, hands-down the yummiest Broccoli Salad I've ever had. Calories & all!! For a hearty one-dish meal, I add chunked up ham that I've cooked in the skillet, so it's warm & the salad is cold. It's a great dish!

We also love the recipe The only thing that I do differently is I use 1/2 mayo and 1/2 salad dressing.

Re: Broccoli Salad?

The only salad I use broccoli in is this:

1/2 box tri-colored pasta
1-2 cups broccoli florets ( I used to cut the green part off the stem to ensure dd couldn't pick it out if she wanted to, but she loves broccoli esp in this salad, so now I just cut it small enough that she can eat it easily.)
1 cup carrot shreds (shredded with carrot peeler so easy for dd to chew)
1/2 cup olives sliced
1/4 cup red onion sliced (optional)
1/4 cup tiny (cherry?) tomatoes (optional)
1/2 cup bell peppers (red or orange to add a variety of colors to your salad)
1 bottle wishbone house italian dressing

*all qantities are subject to change depending on your preference*

SOOOO easy and yummy. . .
