Well as you can see I'm not much of a food photographer. Nevertheless I want to share the recipe for my favorite broccoli salad. It's perfect for any time of year. The sauce adds just a hint of sweetness, and if anyone likes a bit of sweet it's me.
Ingredients for the sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise (use the real thing instead of Miracle Whip, you'll be glad you did)
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
Ingredients for the salad:
2 bunches of broccoli, washed and using only the flower heads
8 slices of bacon cooked and cut into small pieces
1 small red onion chopped or sliced-your choice (I use about half of the onion)
1/2 cup roasted sunflower seeds -no hulls
Mix the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth and keep cool in the fridge.
Mix all the salad ingredients thoroughly, then pour in the sauce and mix well.
Keep refrigerated until time to serve.
You can also add halved grapes or raisins.
I hope you enjoy this salad as much as I do.
