Mike and Becky Polunas are sailing friends of ours. They keep their sailboat, Tan Bare Feet, on the same dock as ours in Oxford, Maryland. Last fall we had a Barbeque and Potluck for all of us on E dock. Along with various other dishes, Becky’s Broccoli Grape Bacon Slaw Salad was a hit! She said she got the recipe from Scott’s Lawn Service Families “Weekender” magazine where they offer $100 for winning recipes. I love the crunchiness of the sunflower seeds and broccoli as well as the sweetness of the grapes and dressing. But the bacon and shredded cheddar cheese brings this dish all together nicely.

 1 large head of broccoli, chopped finely and about 5 cups
 2 cups purple seedless grapes
 1 pound of bacon, cooked and crumbled
 ¼ cup red onion, chopped fine
 1 ½ cups cheddar cheese, grated
 1 cup sunflower seeds
 1 cup mayonnaise
 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
 ¼ cup sugar (I used Agave)

To make the dressing, combine the last 3 ingredients in a jar or bowl and combine well. Set aside. For the broccoli, you can either serve it raw or blanched. If you want to blanch the broccoli, bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Blanch the chopped broccoli for 2 minutes, and then cool down in an ice bath and completely drain. Place the broccoli, grapes, bacon, onion cheddar cheese and sunflower seeds in a bowl.

Pour over the dressing and stir completely until all the ingredients are covered. Place covered in the refrigeration until you are ready to eat. This serves about 6 people as a side dish.
