Broccoli Salad

This is a crispy salad that has a huge amount of flavor and crunch.  It is one of my family's all time favorites!
1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 slices of bacon - cooked & crumbled
4 cups of broccoli
1/2 cup carrots - shredded
1/2 cup red onion - finely diced
1/2 cup cheddar cheese - shredded
1/2 cup roasted sunflower seeds
Cook up your bacon.  Either cut it into small pieces before cooking or cook and them crumble.
In a small bowl, measure out the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar.  
Whisk until combined and smooth.
In a large bowl combine your broccoli, onion and carrots. Stir together well.
Add bacon, sunflower seeds and cheese.  Stir well to combine.
Top with dressing mixture and once again stir well.
Chill for 15 to 30 minutes before serving.
