Broccoli Salad

This is a combination of two different but similar broccoli salad recipes that I got from two friends, Kathleen and Gina.  I just combined them into one recipe and then choose the ingredients I want to use.  You can buy a big bag of precut broccoli at Costco for like $4 which makes this recipe so much easier and faster to make.

1 large bunch (4 – 5 cups) broccoli (I used about 6 cups this time)

1/2 red onion, chopped

1/2 – 1 cup sunflower seeds (I used 1 cup)

1/2 cup raisins (I hate raisins!)

1/2 cup mushrooms (I also hate mushrooms!)

1/2 pound (8 – 10 slices) bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbly (I just used one of those packages of precooked bacon)

1 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar or plain vinegar (I used red wine)

2 tablespoons – 1/4 cup sugar (I used 2 tablespoons)

Cut broccoli into small, bite size pieces.  Mix onion and sunflower seeds with broccoli.  Combine mayo, vinegar and sugar.  Mix with broccoli mixture.  Crumble bacon over salad just before serving.  (I just mixed the bacon in with everything else.)
