Need a quick and easy salad with just a few ingredients?  The blend of broccoli, cheese and bacon with an easy dressing makes a delicious side that people will be begging you for the recipe to!

  • 6 cups Bite Size Broccoli
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 lb. Bacon crisped and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Red Onion
  • 1 cup Roasted, Salted Sunflower Seeds


  • 1 cup Mayo

  1. Chop, grate, prepare and measure the broccoli, red onions, bacon, cheese and sunflower seeds.

  3. Whisk together the mayo, sugar and vinegar for the dressing.

  • I like to make this salad a few hours ahead of time to allow the dressing to soak into the salad a bit and blend the flavors.
