It is hard to believe that this combination makes such an incredible dish. It is a favorite of ours and one of the few times that I like raisins. You can use turkey bacon and light Miracle Whip if you prefer a lighter version. For a festive change you can also add dried cranberries.
8 slices bacon
1 head fresh broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
4-5 green onion stalks, chopped (red onion also works great)
1/2 cup raisins (dark or golden)
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 cup Miracle Whip
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
2 In a medium bowl, combine the broccoli, onion and raisins. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, sugar and mayonnaise. Pour over broccoli mixture, and toss until well mixed. Refrigerate preferably for at least two hours.
3 Before serving, toss salad with crumbled bacon and sunflower seeds.
