This is the salad that my husband likes as a snack. I usually double it for him to munch on at work and after his workouts…
Happy birthday, honey!
Broccoli Salad (serves 4-6 or one husband for a few days…)
5 cups frech broccoli florets
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 – 1/2 cup cooked crumbled bacon
2 tablespoons finely minced red onion, optional
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 cup gluten and dairy free mayonaise
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
4 tablespoons sugar (I use baker’s sugar as it dissolves faster)
Combine broccoli florets, raisins, sunflower seeds, crumbled bacon, and chopped onion (if using) in a large serving bowl. In a small separate bowl whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Add dressing to the salad and toss to mix well; chill thoroughly before serving.
