Heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Once hot, add the bacon, and cook for 3-4 minutes per side (depending on desired crispiness). Set aside to cool on paper towels. Once cooled, chop into pieces.
In a large bowl, combine bite sized broccoli pieces, sunflower seeds, raisins, red onion, bacon, and ranch dressing. Stir until well combined.
Transfer to the fridge, and let sit for at least 3-4 hours before serving, or overnight.
*Use a sugar free bacon such as Peterson Farm's
**I use Tessamae's Paleo Ranch, but feel free to use your own personal favorite. To make a homemade ranch, combine 1/2 cup Paleo Mayo (Primal Kitchen), 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk, 1 tsp dried parsley, 1 tsp dried dill, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp sea salt.
