This salad was a big hit at a church function I attended. The lady who brought it told me basically what she had done, and I quickly bought the ingredients and fixed the salad myself the next day so I could jot it down and share with you all. Cook time is for cooking the pasta - also allow cooling time for the pasta (at least 30 minutes). Once assembled, the salad neds to chill as well - at least 1 hour before serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine noodles, veggies, raisins, and sunflower seeds.

  5. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving in a covered bowl.
  6. Stir again before serving and adjust seasonings if needed.
  7. If too dry, add a an extra spoonful of may or Miracle Whip if desired.

I loved the sweet taste the raisins gave this salad and the crunch of the broccoli and sunflower seeds! Yummy, yummy! Thanks Heather!

Super salad. Add some kidney beans and/or limas for protein,and you have a great light main meal for a hot summer's eve. Good work, Heather.
