Broccoli Salad

Some people call this Trees and ...something. I don't know. To me it's broccoli salad. :)

1 large bunch broccoli, cut up (discard stems)
1/2 pound bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/3 of a red onion, chopped
1/2 cup sunflower kernels or almonds
1/2 cup shredded cheddar

dressing (make several hours before, or the night before so the flavors can mingle)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar (I use Splenda)
2 T. vinegar

Toss all ingredients together and mix with dressing.

Additional add ins:
10 oz. frozen peas, thawed
1 medium cauliflower cut up
3/4 cup craisins (dried cranberries – optional)
shredded carrot
¾ cup raisins
