1 lb. bacon, fried, cooled, and crumbled
32 oz. frozen cheese tortellini, cooked. Rinse under cold water and drain.
3 heads fresh broccoli, cut into florets. Blanch 1 1/2 min, immediately plunge into cold water and drain.
1 cup raisins or craisins
1 cup sunflower seeds
3 Tbsp. chopped red onion
1 cup Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
1/2 cup white sugar
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
Toss bacon, tortellini, broccoli, raisins, sunflower seeds, and red onion in a large bowl. Mix together the mayonnaise, white sugar, and cider vinegar in a small bowl, pour over pasta, and toss. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Best when refrigerated overnight.
Note: This is another one of my favorite salads. -Maria
