I've had many versions of Broccoli Salad at potlucks and picnic gatherings. Here's my spin on it.
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 bunch fresh broccoli florets, cut into bite-size pieces
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (or 1/2 cup of Hormel bacon pieces)
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup dry roasted sunflower kernels
Whisk together mayonnaise, sugar, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Set aside. Combine all other ingredients. Pour dressing over and toss to combine.
