Broccoli Salad

1 bunch of broccoli
1/2 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup white raisins
1/2 cup unsalted sunflower seeds

1/4 cup wine vinegar
1 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbl. sugar

Wash and cut broccoli into flowerettes. Add bacon, raisins and sunflower seeds. Make dressing by beating mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Add dressing just before serving.

This is a lightly sweet salad that is oh so good and refreshing. It's simple to make. The dressing can be made ahead and refrigerated. You can use pre-cooked bacon to cut time. You can also use chopped nuts such as pecans and walnuts or almond slivers instead of the sunflower seeds. For those dieters, use a sugar substitute instead of real sugar.
