Broccoli Salad

While looking around for things to make for Easter Sunday I found some great recipes on Pinterest.  Except that I found out that the temperature was going to be an INCREDIBLE 18* celsius (that's 64* F for the Yanks) and there were going to be 16 people in a townhouse I thought a salad would be a better option.  So I created this yummy broccoli salad from several different recipes.

1 red onion, chopped
1 142g package of Craisins
1 100g package of bacon bits
sunflower seeds (to taste)

1 cup mayonnaise 
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbls vinegar

Mix together your mayo, vinegar and sugar with a whisk.  Feel free to add some fresh cracked pepper too!

I used 4 large broccoli heads for my salad.  I trimmed the stalks from the head and cut the crowns into bite sized pieces.  I kept the stalks for Cream of Broccoli Soup!  Toss the broccoli in a large bowl.  Chop up your onion and add it to the bowl.

That's all the tough work.  Now just add your fixin's.  The craisins, bacon bits and sunflower seeds can be adjusted to your person tastes.

Stir in the dressing just before eating. Make sure to really stir it up really well.  

Like I said, I brought this for Easter Sunday dinner and it was demolished.  There was nothing left!  So I have to assume the guests liked it!
