Broccoli Salad

I've been rushing trying to post as many summertime goodies as I could for the 4th of July
Everyone has their own version of this very popular salad
below is mine
Its a great dish for any gathering
3 to 4 Large Heads Broccoli, stems removed
1/2 cup Spanish Onion, finely chopped or thinly sliced
2 1/2 cups Craisins, Cranberries or Raisins
1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds or your choice of nuts
2 cups Fancy Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup White Wine Vinegar
1/2 cup White Sugar
1 1/3 cup Mayonnaise
1 cup pre-cooked & crumbled Bacon
Place vegetables and nuts in a large bowl. Set aside. 
Meanwhile, prepare the dressing by whisking together the vinegar, sugar, mayo & lemon juice.
Pour dressing over the vegetables, toss to completely coat all.
Cover & chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
Vegetables will remain crisp. 
Refrigerating overnight will yield softer vegetable.
Place into small canning jars for individual servings
or larger jars for taking on a picnic or out boating.
