My very favorite way to eat broccoli, this is soooooo yummy!!!
2 stalks fresh broccoli, coarsely chopped in 1/2" pieces
2/3 cups raisins
10 strips crisply fried bacon, chopped
4 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons white vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
Mix first 5 ingredients.
Blend dressing ingredients, mix into salad.
Refrigerate until serving.

My note: I usually 'plump' and soften the raisins first by pouring boiling water over them and letting them set for a few minutes. Also, I use pine nuts instead of sunflower seeds, just my preference. Sunflower seeds are usually salty and they also are so small they tend to stick to the sides of the bowl.
Other people incorporate chopped cauliflower and use halved seedless red grapes instead of raisins. Still others use grated cheese of some kind.
