This is a delightful, cool, and crisp salad with healthy fruits, vegetables, and nuts that is a great accompaniment to any entree. It’s a real favorite with anyone who tries it. This is a fun recipe as you can get creative with it. I have even made it with out the sunflower seeds, and it was still delicious.
Whisk mayonnaise, cider vinegar, and sugar together in a small bowl until sugar dissolves and the dressing is smooth.
Toss broccoli, grapes, walnuts, red onion, sunflower seeds, cranberries, and bacon bits together in a large bowl. Drizzle dressing over the salad and gently fold so ingredients are evenly coated.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours. Stir before serving.
