The Best Broccoli Salad
This simple, classic broccoli salad is a staple side dish, perfect for a potluck or party. Start with bacon, red onion, golden raisins, sunflower seeds and cheddar cheese and end with an easy homemade dressing!
- 4 cups broccoli florets, chopped
- ¼ cup red onion, chopped
- ½ cup golden raisins
- ½ cup sunflower kernels
- ¼ cup cooked bacon, chopped or bacon pieces
- ¾ cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
If you didn't buy bacon pieces, go ahead and cook the bacon in the oven first.
While the bacon is cooking, rinse the broccoli and chop it into small florets.
Chop red onion until you have ¼ cup.
Once bacon is finished cooking, pat the grease off with paper towels and chop until you have ¼ cup.
Combine broccoli, chopped red onion, golden raisins, sunflower kernels, chopped bacon and cheddar cheese.
Mix the salad dressing ingredients together with a whisk.
Pour salad dressing over salad mixture and stir until well combined.
Chill in the fridge for 2 hours before serving.
