Broccoli Salad

This is a recipe of my sister-in-law's and it’s a great salad that everyone is always requesting.  You could probably make it a little healthier by using Greek Yogurt instead of the mayo but I personally haven’t tried that … yet!  I do use naturally cured bacon without nitrates, a good brand cheddar cheese and shred it myself and organic sugar.

Broccoli Salad

1 bunch Fresh Broccoli (I buy the Broccoli Crowns and use 2)
1 Red Onion, sliced thin
½ lb Bacon, crumbled
½ cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
½ cup Sunflower Seeds

½ cup Mayonnaise
¼ cup Sugar
1 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar

Cut broccoli into bite size pieces.  Mix in remaining ingredients.  Mix dressing and add to salad mixture.  Easy and delicious!
