So I guess the planets were aligned just right about a month ago when my friend Joanne brought this to a Bible study potluck. It was amazing. It was crunchy, sweet, and salty. It was completely not what I was expecting anything with broccoli to taste like. And I, a lifelong broccoli despiser, was hooked. I mean, I was craving this stuff. I've made it no less that 6 times in the past month. It's getting ugly here.
So I figured there might be other broccoli-haters out there who might enjoy giving this recipe a try. If you haven't made friends with broccoli yet, this is a great recipe to get you started. Try it some time and see if you don't become slightly less passionate about the evils of broccoli!
Here's what you'll need:
First, give your broccoli a good chop.
4 cups broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup raisins
4 slices bacon, cooked crisply and crumbled
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon vinegar
Combine broccoli, sunflower seeds, raisins, and bacon in serving bowl. In a smaller bowl mix together the mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar. Pour over the broccoli mixture. Stir and serve!
