Nana's Broccoli Salad

Sunday, July 12, 2009

This recipe is an old classic from my Nana Crain. I was surprised the first time I had this salad as a college student at how much I liked it, since I had never really liked broccoli before. The fun sunflower seeds, Craisins, bacon bits and tangy dressing make this healthy salad enjoyable even for the pickiest eaters and it's a great way to get my kids to eat all their veggies!

The ingredients:
2 bunches broccoli
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbs. vinegar
3 Tbs. sugar
Add-ins according to your preferences: sunflower seeds, Craisins, bacon bits, grated cheese

Chop broccoli into small pieces. Stir in desired add-ins.

Mix mayonnaise, vinegar, and sugar together then pour over broccoli mixture. Stir together. Serve immediately.
