Broccoli/cauliflower salad

My sister fixed this and it became an instant favorite of mine----can accompany a meal or be a meal in itself.

3 heads of broccoli (3 good size heads from large stalk)
1/2 head cauliflower
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds kernels
1/2 pound of bacon
1 cup of golden raisins
2 or 3 green onions chopped
1 cup mayonaise
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons white vinegar

While you are cooking your bacon, wash & chop veggies. You remove the tiny heads of the broccoli & cauliflower from the stalk so they will look like this-

Add the sunflower kernels, raisins, & chopped green onions to the broccoli & cauliflower. Crumble cooked bacon into the mix.

In a separate bowl mix the mayo, sugar, & white vinegar. Pour & stir dressing onto your veggie mix. Can be made the night before-but wait & add the dressing before serving.

This is a great salad we've enjoyed in the past. I'd forgotten about it till I saw it when visiting your blog. It is really delish! Nice blog;
