Broccoli Summer Salad

Ahhh,  it's starting to feel like summer finally!  I don't know about you but for me summer and food equates to lots of wonderful salads.  I am always on the lookout for new salad recipes, I found this one the other day.  Last night hubby grilled out bar-b-que chicken and I made a little potato salad and this new broccoli salad, it was a hit!  The photo isn't all that fabulous but the taste definitely was, hope you enjoy it as well!

1 head of broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
½ c. raisins
¼ c. red onion, chopped
2 t. white sugar
2 t. white vinegar
2 t. water
½ c. mayonnaise
1 c. sunflower seeds
3-5 slices of bacon
1. place bacon in a skillet and cook on medium-high heat until evenly brown. set aside.
2. in a large bowl combine broccoli pieces, raisins and red onion
3. in a smaller bowl combine white sugar, white vinegar, water and mayo: whisk until combined
4. add the smaller bowl to the larger bowl and toss until well combined
5. refrigerate for 1-2 hours. sprinkle with sunflower seeds and chopped bacon and serve.
