Sweet Broccoli Salad

Here’s a recipe from Ken Sears that appeared in the Newsletter in 1996. When he brought it out on the Bodie trip we all enjoyed it so much we decided to publish it again for those who might have missed or forgotten it:

  • 1 head broccoli (as much as you like) chopped fine
  • 1 C raisins
  • 1 C salted sunflower seeds
  • 10 slices crisply fried bacon crumbled (or substitute 6 T Hormel Real Bacon Bits)
  • 1/2 C red onion chopped


  • 1/2 C regular or low-fat mayonnaise (Increase to 1C if you like a heavier dressing.)
  • 1/3 C sugar
  • 2 T rice vinegar (or regular vinegar if you prefer)

Toss dressing and other ingredients together and serve. If you're making this for the next day, add the sunflower seeds just before serving.
