1-1 1/2 heads of broccoli
12 pieces of thin sliced bacon
1 cup raisins
1/4-1/3 cup-shelled sunflower seeds
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbs. sugar
2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar


Knife and cutting board
Measuring cup
Measuring spoons
Mixing bowl
Paper towels
Microwave-safe dish or frying pan

In a microwave oven or in a frying pan, cook the bacon until it is crispy. Cover a plate with paper towels. Place the cooked bacon on the paper towels and pat to absorb excess grease. When the bacon has cooled, crumble it into bits. Cut the broccoli into florets. The dish can be prepared up to this point in advance. Place all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well. Serve cold or at room temperature.
