  • 2 large broccoli crowns cut into florets
  • ½ medium-sized red onion (about ½ cup)
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • a pinch of salt


  1.  Cut the broccoli into small to medium size florets – not tiny, but a good bite size.
  2. Put the cut broccoli into a large bowl.
  3. Dice the red onion.
  4. Put the red onion into the bowl with the broccoli.
  5. Sprinkle the raisins and sunflower seeds over the broccoli mixture.
  6. In a separate small bowl, mix together well the vinegar, mayonnaise, honey and salt.
  7. Pour that mixture into the large bowl with the broccoli and stir together until blended.
  8. This can be eaten right away, but the flavors mix together well if left in the refrigerator for an hour or two or even overnight.
