Full of crunch, thanks to the sunflower seeds and apple, this broccoli salad is a happy marriage of flavour and texture. It travels well, and is a welcome addition to the picnic or potluck table.
Cut the broccoli florets into bite-size pieces. Peel the stems and chop them, too.
In a large bowl, toss together the broccoli, sunflower seeds, cranberries, apple, onion, parsley, bacon and mustard seeds. Add the cheese.
In a jam jar, add all of the dressing ingredients and shake well. Pour the dressing over the salad and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Can use apple cider vinegar instead of red wine vinegar.
Can use dried tart cherries instead of dried cranberries.
