Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad

2 bunches of broccoli, cut up into bite size pieces
3/4 cup red onion, chopped
1 lb. bacon (about 6 strips), cut and cooked
3/4 cup sunflower seeds

1 cup mayonnaise
1 T. vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. parsley (add more if fresh is used)

1. Steam broccoli in microwave for 1 - 1 1/2 minutes
2. Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl and mix
3. Combine other (dry) ingredients in a large bowl
4. Pour dressing over dry ingredients and mix

Add mandarin orange slices if desired


  1. I agree that this is an excellent salad. And a place where my food processor is a life-saver. So easy to put that broccoli in the machine and with a few quick whirrs of the chopping blade, most of the work is done. Rather than let the machine go too long, I stop it and hand chop the few pieces that didn't get hit finely enough with the blade.
