I've been craving broccoli salad after seeing it on a salad bar.This recipe did not dissapoint. I've never seen a recipe with peas before, but the peas were a welcome addition. A helpful hint, a half cup of crumbled bacon is 8 center cut slices.

Yummy!!! This is awsome!! I added some chopped ham I had left over along with the bacon and used pinenuts instead of sunflower seeds (only because thats what I had on hand)also left out the rasins (family not fond of them) Wonderful!!!
