Broccoli Salad With Raisin Recipe

This is a very basic broccoli salad with raisin recipe I use when out camping or on the boat during my fishing season.

I like having some sort of dried fruit in my broccoli salads and raisins are the best bet when you want something that keeps well without refrigerating.

A red, yellow or orange bell pepper will give the salad a nice colour contrast.  Sunflower seeds can be replaced with pumpkin seeds or your favorite nuts.  Trail mix works as well to give it a healthy crunchiness.

This salad will always taste better if you let is sit in the refrigerator(or cooler if camping) for a few hours before serving and make sure you stir it a few times to help blend the flavours.
