Broccoli Salad Recipe

This Broccoli Salad Recipe is quite "tangy" and a little bit sweet, a real "pick me upper".

A great combination of fresh broccoli, raisins, sunflower seeds and bacon, with a dressing of Miracle Whip or mayo, sugar and apple cider vinegar, which also makes for a very healthy salad.

A good side dish especially if served along with corn-on-the-cob, potato salad and garlic bread, and it is also colorful on the plate.

It is easy to bring to a picnic and gets great reviews by both young and old.

This recipe will make 4-5 cups or 8-10 servings.
