1 medium purple onion, finely chopped
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
6 strips bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled
1/2 c. sunflower seeds or raisins (optional)...i think Emily used craisins- yum!
1 recipe Broccoli Salad Dressing (see below)
In a large bowl combine broccoli, onion, and cheese. Refrigerate. Just before serving, stir in bacon. Add sunflower seeds or raisins or craisins if you wish. Pour desired amount of dressing over salad. Stir briefly. Serve the same day.
