I make this, but I do a couple of things differently that makes it so much more tasty. I put the mayo and the raisins in a blender and it makes the dressing much better. After mixing, let it sit in the fridge over night. Add the sunflower seeds right before serving.

I loved this recipe! The only thing I would do different next time is to blanch or steam the broccoli just a little bit (my kids didn't care for the raw broccoli taste). I also only used sugar. Great!
