For the salad-

  • 1 head fresh broccoli cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/4 cup red onion chopped
  • 1 cup red grapes halved*
  • 10 slices of cooked bacon* *
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds***

For the dressing-

  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 cup mayonnaise


  • In a medium bowl, combine the broccoli, onion and grapes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, sugar and mayonnaise. Pour over broccoli mixture, and toss until well mixed.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Before serving, toss salad with crumbled bacon and sunflower seeds.


* You can substitute 1/2 cup of raisins or dried cranberries for grapes if that is more your thing!
** I buy the bacon that is already cooked, but you can make your own- just let it cool before you add it to this salad.
*** Use your favorite nut instead of sunflower seeds. Cashews are one of my favorite additions to this salad!
