Broccoli Almondine

This salad is awesome and one of my favorite things to bring to holidays, family gatherings, birthdays, and to just have at home. My mother is the queen of salads and this is her recipe.
 Broccoli Almondine Salad
            2-3 heads broccoli - cut into small pieces
2 cups shredded cheese - any flavor you like
1 lb of bacon - fried and crumbled
grapes - cut in half OR craisins
onion chopped finely - amount varies this is optional
1/4 cup slivered or sliced almonds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup mayo
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar

Stir the first 7 ingredients together in a large bowl. In a separate dish blend mayo, sugar and vinegar together. Pour over salad and stir together until it is evenly coated, chill and serve.

*Keep in mind that ingredients such as sunflower seeds, onion etc are optional. Make it to fit your palate!
