Broccoli Bacon salad

SO... Can you tell that I bought a giant bag of broccoli when I was at Costco?
It's one of the few Vegetables that every person in my family agrees on. It seems to be everyones favourite. My favourite way to eat it is in this yummy salad. But I'm alone on that one. Don't worry, Brad was more than willing to help me eat this batch.
This is how I do bacon. I loath pan frying it! Lay it in a single layer on stoneware; bake at 400 until cooked to your liking

Approx 1/3 cup Mayo, 1 Tbsp Vinegar, 1 Tbsp Sugar

Chop Bacon, and 1/2 red onion, and broccoli

Mix it all, with Raisins, sunflower seeds and cheese... YUMMY!

Broccoli Salad
6 cups chopped broccoli
1/2 red Onion
1 pkg bacon
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup shredded cheese
1/3 cup Mayo
1Tbsp Vinegar
1Tbsp Sugar
This is an easily customizable salad, I used a mix of raisins and craisins, Add toasted almonds, chopped bell peppers would be tasty too, Any cheese, or non at all. It's great to make ahead of time, and tastes best the next day. Please do try!
Thanks Brad for your recipe, it's delicious!
