Broccoli and Bacon Side Salad

Monday, May 08, 2017
It's May, which means the BBQs are lighting up again....which means it's my favorite cooking season-side salads!  I made this awhile back for a potluck I was attending.  I really enjoyed it because it wasn't too saucy, but flavorful.   If you like bacon, this is right up your alley.
Broccoli and Bacon Salad
12 oz pkg of spiral pasta, 1 c. mayonnaise, 1/4 c. red wine vinegar, 1/4 c. sugar, 1 t. salt, 2 c. raw broccoli (chopped), 1 c. cheddar cheese (cubed), 1/2 c. roasted sunflower seeds (salted or unsalted), 1/2 c. bacon (cooked and crumbled), 1/2 c. red onion
1.  Cook pasta according to package.  Drain and rinse with cold water.  Toss in bowl with broccoli, cheese, sunflower seeds, onion, and bacon.
2.  In a separate bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, red wine vinegar, sugar, and salt.  Pour over pasta and toss.
3.  Chill for at least one hour.
