1 tablespoon cider vinegar 

1/3 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup sunflower kernels 

Directions

3. Drain well, run under cold water to stop the cooking, and drain again.

Add the broccoli and toss the coat with the dressing. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Just before servings, fold in the sunflower kernels and the bacon pieces. Serve immediately.
