I think the below link may be what you are looking for. I make a salad really similar from Allrecipes called "Alyson's Broccoli Salad". The name of your salad is "Joan's Broccoli Madness".

BROCCOLI RAISIN SALAD
1 large broccoli head, washed and drained
1 cup red onion chopped
1/2 cup golden raisins (can regular raisins)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 lb. bacon, fried crisp and crumbled
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
2 Tblsp. red wine vinegar
3/4 cup mayonnaise or 1/2 light mayo and 1/2 light sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
In a large bowl, combine the broccoli florets, onions, raisins, pecans and bacon. In a small bowl, combine the dressing ingredients, the vinegar, mayonnaise and sugar. Mix well and pour over broccoli mixture. Toss gently and refrigerate, covered, overnight. Toss gently the next day when ready to serve.
You know, now that I read pat's recipe, I remember I do usually add cheese to my salad too. I don't think it was in the recipe you had, but it really does add something extra; so give it a try. I also prefer the red wine vinegar. I have added different types of nuts too for variations... sliced almonds are one of my favorites.
