Do you know anyone who is so-called “allergic” to broccoli?  I don’t mean a real medical reaction…I’m talking about that person who pushes aside any green-colored food and is “just too full” to finish their plate.  Well, one solution is to add bacon and a bunch of other goodness to convert this nutritious (remember it has vitamin A, C, calcium, iron and fiber!!!) food into the dish that makes them ask for more.  Not only is this salad deliciously sweet and salty, the crunchiness of the broccoli and sunflower seeds makes a great texture too.  If you prepare the bacon with your morning breakfast, the remaining preparation is raw so it’s an easy throw-together for a lunch or dinner side dish. Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.

The broccoli-hater converter: Sweet and Salty Broccoli Salad
Serves 4-6
Method: Camp Stovetop

Ingredients:
15 slices bacon
1 head broccoli
1/4 c. red onion
1/2 c. raisins
3 T white wine vinegar
2 T sugar
1 c. mayonnaise
1 c. sunflower seeds

How to create it:

Bacon:
In skillet, thoroughly cook bacon over medium high heat.  Drain, crumble and set aside.  (I like to do this while making breakfast so all of the cooking is done and I just have to assemble the raw salad later in the day.)

Chop and combine:
Broccoli (bite-sized pieces), onion (diced) and raisins into a bowl. Dressing: Use small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, sugar and mayonnaise.

Pour and mix:
Add dressing to broccoli mixture—toss until combined.

Serving:
This salad is best after it sits for a while—refrigerated for about 2 hours (although, I’ve also served it immediately and it’s great.)  Right before serving, toss in the bacon and sunflower seeds (they can get soggy if you add them too early.)
