Broccoli Tortellini Salad

1 pkg. cheese tortellini (can be found in the pasta aisle)
1 head broccoli, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
12 slices bacon, fried (or baked) (I have also used real bacon bits, much not use imitation bacon bits...yuck!)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds (I use more)
1 cup mayonnaise
2 T white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 tsp. salt

Cook tortellini according to package directions. Drain. Let cool. Mix tortellini, bacon, onion and sunflower seeds in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar and salt. (Or whiz it in the blender like I do) Pour over broccoli tortellini mixture.

*I've also had this with raisins in it. I prefer it without.*
