Great at Christmastime! Red and green colors make this salad so festive! So easy to make and looks great in a trifle dish or glass bowl.

Although there a lot of great broccoli salad recipes on the Zaar, I tried this one because of the "Christmas" in the name. I particularly liked the addition of the sweet red peppers. I used red onion instead of green; rice vinegar instead of cider vinegar; sunflower seeds instead of pecans, and added dried cranberries (to make it even more Christmas-y). Like another reviewer, I added sugar -- 1 TBSP of organic sugar to the dressing. Also used Light Hellman's mayo and center cut bacon to cut down on the fat and calories. My dinner party group snarfed it down!
