Yield Makes 6 servings
You've probably seen many versions of this old standby. Broccoli raisin salad is so good, we're trying it again. The recipe easily doubles to serve 12.


  • 1 medium-size purple onion
  • 1 (16-ounce) package fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 (3.75-ounce) package sunflower kernels
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

How to Make It

  1. Cut onion into thin slices; cut onion slices in half.

  2. Stir together onion and remaining ingredients. Chill at least 2 hours.

  3. NOTE: For a lighter version, substitute turkey bacon and low-fat mayonnaise.
