Made ahead, a bowl of this salad would make a well-rounded lunch, or dinner for one of those too-busy-to-cook nights. The crunchiness of the broccoli, sunflower seeds and crisp crumbled bacon make the perfect foil for the mayonnaise-based dressing.
Discovered this recipe while I was a consultant to one of the long time landmark New Orleans restaurants 20 years ago. It's still my all-time favorite catfish recipe and I have closely guarded the recipe till now. I hope others will enjoy it as much as I have.
