1 lbs. broccoli florets (@ 2 ½ heads = 5-6 cups)
1 c. sharp cheddar cheese (thicker not finely shredded)
⅔ c. dried cranberries
½ c. crumbled REAL bacon (not fake bacon bits nasty)
½ c. salted sunflower seeds
⅓ c. red onion, diced small pieces
¾ c. mayonnaise
¼ c. sour cream
1 ½ Tbsp. white wine vinegar
3 Tbsp. white sugar
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
Note: In Belize we use butt bacon, it comes in a (12 oz.) package. I cut the bacon up into small pieces and then pan fry till done. I use entire package for this salad.
How to Store Broccoli Salad
Broccoli Salad may be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days. If you are making several days in advance, I recommend storing the salad and the dressing separately, then tossing everything together at least an hour before serving.
