This a variation of the traditional broccoli salad with craisins, bacon bits, sunflower seeds, red onion and poppy seed dressing. I came up with this in response to a healthy carry-in challenge where we were encouraged to bring something from a list of 10 ingredients. Cooking time is chill time.

Did cut this recipe in half, but other than that, it was pretty much followed & we had a very satisfying salad! Loved the combo of flavors as made, but my other half read one of the reviews & felt the need to add some feta cheese! Definitely a make-again kind of recipe! Thanks for sharing it!

Love this combination of flavors especially the dried cranberries-a favorite in our house! And so easy to put together when you have lots of entertaining to do. I was concerned that the apple would turn brown but the dressing prevented that from happening. Had this today as part of Fourth of July cook out. It was gone before I had a chance to take a picture. Thanks LARavenscroft for sharing. Made for Gimme 5 tag.
